Overton Broad Connector

Hired to design the missing link between Overton Park and the terminus of the Shelby Farms Greenline, LRK’s plan had to navigate obstacles such as crossing several of the city’s busiest thoroughfares. The design proposes a two-way cycle track, a 12-foot-wide lane on one side of the road with two bicycle lanes, one going in each direction. With the goal of reinvigorating the surrounding Binghampton community and the Broad Avenue Arts District, the plan also recommends streetscape improvements such as median strips, traffic signals, signage, on-street parking, landscaping and street furniture.
