Park and Pier Revitalizes Town’s Waterfront
Tighe & Bond provided engineering services for a unique project that converted a former oil terminal into a multi-use town park dock. After the pier was no longer in service, it suffered damage from major storm events, winter river ice, and a vessel collision leaving several timber piles broken.
Tighe & Bond conducted a detailed assessment of the dock conditions, analysis and design, and ocean and structural engineering for the dock, and shared opinions of the probable cost of the improvements. Tighe & Bond’s dock repair design included ADA accessibility and multifunction access, including recreational boating and fishing.
The pier not only enhances public access to the Hudson River but also provides docking and passenger transfer for vessels including the historic 1,500-passenger steamship SS Columbia.
Tighe & Bond provided permitting, final design, bidding, and construction that led to the completion of Milton Landing Park and Pier and the economic revitalization of the town’s waterfront.
