City Of Oswego Route 104 Complete Streets, West 1st, Oswego NY

A Complete Streets highway for NY State Route 104 through the City of Oswego.

The City of Oswego transformed approximately 3.3-mile corridor of NYS Route 104 as it passes through the City.  They envisioned a future Route 104 that enhances the character of the corridor while improving safety and mobility options.  Bergmann, in conjunction with Alta Planning + Design, took a critical look at the current configuration of NYS Route 104.  The project goal was to provide comfortable and safe bicycle accommodation for the residents, as well as SUNY Oswego students through the city.  Additionally, the design team sought ways to calm traffic and enhance the pedestrian environment to provide a corridor that is attractive and usable by all modes of transportation.  Opportunities for green infrastructure were also investigated to incorporate more greenspace into the environment, as well as to functionally reduce the storm water runoff volumes in response to a DEC consent decree to reduce discharge into Lake Ontario.
