The Hudson County Improvement Authority was selected by the NJ Association of Conservation Districts for its 2015 Outstanding Developer award for the construction of the 9-hole Skyway Golf Course on top of a former landfill.
This project increased public access to sixty-five acres of previously unused and inaccessible public property by the creation of the first (and only) public golf course in Hudson County. A public waterfront walkway runs along the west edge of the golf course. The design of the course incorporates native vegetation and a tidal pond that will support the recreated wetlands, transition area, and golf course.
The design engineers, PS&S, and developer, the Hudson County Improvement Authority, worked cooperatively with the Hudson Essex Passaic SCD throughout all phases of the six-year project including dredging, surcharging, grading, construction and final stabilization.
