Shadow Analysis for the Two Bridges LSRD proposals
The three developments would cast some incremental shadows on 34 resources in the project area. However, Cherry Clinton Playground, Lillian D. Wald Playground, and Rutgers Park would experience significant adverse shadow impacts. Move the slider to compare shadow projections for September 21 and May 6.
According to the DEIS, incremental shadows would fall on Cherry Clinton Playground for more than two hours every day and for more than three hours in the summer months, in the early to mid-afternoon. The DEIS discloses that this would have a significant adverse effect on the health of the trees on the playground property. Similarly, incremental shadows would fall on Lilian D. Wald Playground in the mid-afternoon for roughly two hours during the March 21 and September 21 evaluation periods.
Incremental shadows would fall on Little Flower Playground for approximately 5 hours of during the March 21 and September 21 evaluation periods. Coleman Playground would experience more than two hours of incremental shadows in the morning during the summer months and for nearly an hour in the spring and fall.
