Construction on the New Springville Greenway was completed in the summer of 2015. The 3.2-mile path along the eastern edge of Freshkills Park creates north/south bike access parallel with Richmond Avenue.
After East Mound capping completed in 2011, West Mound was the last remaining landfill section to be capped. At 545 acres, West Mound is the site’s largest, with the West Shore Expressway to the east and the Arthur Kill to the west. It’s bordered by the LFG Purification Plant, Leachate Treatment Plant, and SI District 3 Garage and Borough Repair Shop. An earthwork monument is envisioned atop the mound in remembrance of the September 11 recovery effort that occurred in this location.
East Mound Capping began in 2007. The 482-acre section sits along Richmond Avenue near the Staten Island Mall. Learn about the plan for East Mound.
