Mercy College Public Private Walkway

Mercy College’s public private walkway was developed to connect students and commuters with safe access to the Ardsley-on-Hudson Train Station.

Developed in partnership between Mercy College, the Village of Irvington, and the MTA, the construction project was one of many recent improvements to the Dobbs Ferry, NY campus. Student-centered renovations included the construction of a new dormitory, associated walkways, utilities, offsite road and traffic signal improvements, landscaping, and additional parking.

The McLaren Difference: Applied Ingenuity

Having provided engineering services for much of the upgrades, McLaren was responsible for site/civil engineering, surveying and construction phase services for design, approval, and construction of the integral public private walkway that supported the new flow of circulation across the site. We provided geotechnical investigations and collaborated with multiple stakeholders throughout the process. Our team was responsible for site design, grading, sediment and erosion control plans, site lighting isometric drawings, permitting services and more.

Today, this quarter-mile walkway safely connects the Mercy College campus to Metro-North Railroad’s Hudson Line with strategically placed landscape lighting to improve visibility as well as cameras and emergency call boxes along the route.
