Revitalization: DOT Agrees to Look at Skyway Alternatives
Congressman Higgins stands in front of his towering opponent while inner harbor development can be spotted in the background. The Skyway has stymied harbor development for years and now finally NYSDOT has agreed to look at alternatives to the concrete behemoth. Alternatives include South Park Ave since it’s $2.3 million improvements as well as Ohio Street, undergoing an $11 million transformation into a riverfront parkway, or a potential bridge connecting the inner and outer harbor. If Higgins succeeds the waterfront would be free from under the Skyway’s shadow allowing a more tourist-friendly waterfront.
Yes please. Down with the skyway.
