A few weeks back the Newburgh Community Land Bank published renderings for its Broadway Corridor Demonstration Project that reimagines the Broadway/Liberty Street intersection. The City of Newburgh and the Land Bank want to demonstrate options for redesigning Broadway to improve safety, enhance open space, and encourage sustainability.
There are 4 concepts which show the gradual development of Broadway for complete streets. Concept 4 shows a grand vision of widened sidewalks, a bus lane, and a planted median. This intersection is considered the heart of downtown Newburgh as it extends to Washington’s Headquarters. It was the heart of the Newburgh Illuminated Festival, and plans are now moving ahead for a community park on the south west corner.
