B&L Receives Best Firms to Work For Award

For the seventh consecutive year by Zweig Group Read More


Griffiss Veterans Memorial Parkway

What was the Challenge?

Upon the closure of the former Griffiss Air Force Base, Barton & Loguidice was tasked with helping the Griffiss Local Development Corporation (GLDC) plan and design transportation infrastructure to convert the former base into a business park. The essential considerations for the project were accommodating for high traffic volumes, modernizing inefficient signalized intersections, improving outdated stormwater drainage systems, and providing accommodations for pedestrians and cyclists.

How did Barton & Loguidice provide a solution?

The newly designed divided parkway includes many unique and innovative features. It includes modern roundabouts that safely and efficiently process turning traffic and three stormwater infiltration ponds to eliminate drainage issues and improve water quality. There is also a multi-use path for pedestrians and cyclists, which links the Mohawk River Trail System and the Griffiss Business Park Trail System.

Why was the project a success?

Local business owners and residents alike have embraced this project because it provides efficient traffic flow and enhances the visual environment. It has also opened up an additional redevelopment parcel, further expanding the conversion from an abandoned base to a thriving business park.

This project was the recipient of the New York State Department of Transportation GreenLites Award for sustainability. This designation is awarded to projects that incorporate a number of sustainable design choices, with many of those choices having a high level of impact or an advanced state of practice.
