The Village of New Hyde Park has selected D&B to provide Professional Engineering Design Services for the Village’s Road Improvement Project. This is the largest and most com-prehensive road improvement project the Village has undertaken in the last 25 years. The road improvement project includes approximately two miles or 10,905 linear feet of roadway. Roads in the base project total 8,985 linear feet and roads in the add/alternatives project total 1,920 linear feet. Road selections were based on a road grading analysis conducted by Village Engineers D&B Engineers and Architects.
The cost of this project is estimated at $2.2 million which includes design, bid documents, plans, and asphalt pavement replacement and may include driveway aprons, sidewalks, and concrete curb replacements as needed to meet the new street grade. The Village will borrow up to $1.5 million to help fund this project and the Board is confident that the Village will maintain its favorable AA+ credit rating which will help the Village secure a lower interest rate. The design work is just beginning and, upon completion, bid solicitations will be issued. Although weather plays a big role, road construction will begin late Spring and continue into Summer.
