Robert Moses Parkway North 

Three remaining alternative designs

 
Alternative 3 - Partial Re-Use of the Robert Moses Parkway

Alternative 3 begins by removing the RMP from Main Street to Findlay Drive and utilizing Third and Whirlpool Streets as the park road. From Findlay Drive, the alternative is similar to Alternative 2 by converting the northbound lanes into a two way park road all the way to Center Street in the Village of Lewiston. 

 

 

Alternative 4 - Meandering Partial Park Road

Alternative 4 begins by partially removing the RMP from Main Street to Findlay Drive and utilizing Third and Whirlpool Streets as the park road. From Findlay Drive, the alternative utilizes portions of the existing northbound and southbound lanes to create a meandering two way park road to Devil's Hole State Park. From Devil's Hole State Park to the interchange with Upper Mountain Road, motorists would use Lewiston Road. North of the interchange, a two way park road would begin again utilizing the existing alignment of the northbound lanes to connect with the parkway at Center Street in the Village of Lewiston.

 


 
Alternative 6 - Removal of the Parkway

The final alternative begins by removing the RMP from Main Street to Findlay Drive and utilizing Third and Whirlpool Streets as the park road. From Findlay Drive, the alternative utilizes portions of the existing northbound lanes to create a park access drive only to Whirlpool State Park. Access north of Findlay Drive to the Village of Lewiston would be along Lewiston Road. Access to Devil's Hole State Park and a new overlook will be from Lewiston Road. Only a multimodal trail will meander through the entire park corridor.
