Valley Stream Path to LIRR - Edward Cahill Memorial Park

The purpose of the Valley Stream Path to the LIRR is to improve Edward Cahill Memorial Park and link pedestrians and bicyclists to public transit via bus and train. This new link would discourage pedestrians and bicyclists from crossing Sunrise Highway at a congested intersection, and encourage a safer crossing at Sunrise Highway at Hicks St. The project also allows for safe and efficient non-motorized travel options to communities amenities such as Village Hall, library, dog park, and the downtown. This  project provides users with connections between community destinations from Mill Road and Roosevelt Ave as well as the dead-end streets of Fairfield, Elmwood, Derby, Cambridge and Berkley. This project is part of the Village of Valley Stream's revitalization strategies which plan to link the north-south chain of parks with off-road and on-road pedestrian and bicycle infrastructure. This chain of parks intersects several community amenities, our train station, and both current and future downtown improvement projects.


There will be a public hearing on Monday, October 23rd at 7pm in Village Hall (123 S. Central Ave) to discuss the draft design of the path and associated infrastructure. You can review the design at the link below.
