On Earth Day Weekend, Hoboken Pilots Temporary Connection in Waterfront Walkway Gap




Hoboken, NJ - Wednesday, April 20th, 2016

Sinatra Drive Runners

Beginning on Earth Day, Friday, April 22nd, and throughout the rest of the weekend, the City of Hoboken will temporarily complete the largest remaining gap in the Hudson River Waterfront Walkway adjacent to Union Dry Dock with a protected multiuse path. The path along Sinatra Drive will begin near the skate park and extend to the intersection with Sinatra Drive North for use by pedestrians and bicyclists, similar to most of the existing waterfront walkway.

In addition, Hudson Bike Share will offer a “Ride for Earth, Ride for Free” day on Saturday, April 23rd. After registering for a free account at hudsonbikeshare.com or through the nextbike mobile app, riders will be able to take an unlimited number of free 30 minute rides all day. Upon registration, a debit or credit card will be required in case of overages or bicycle damage. A $1 deposit to confirm validity of the card will be available for future purchases or refunded if unused in the first two weeks.

Bike Hoboken, Don’t Sit Home, and Hudson Bike Share are partnering for a group ride on Saturday, April 23rd to take advantage of Hudson Bike Share’s “Ride for Earth, Ride for Free” day and the completed waterfront path. For event information, visit https://www.facebook.com/events/825261290911378.

The Hudson River Waterfront Walkway is envisioned as a continuous 18.5 mile multiuse waterfront corridor from Bayonne to the George Washington Bridge. Major sections of the walkway in Hoboken have been completed in recent years including the connection at Weehawken Cove, the reconstruction of Sinatra Park, and a segment adjacent to the Stevens Institute of Technology lot. The last major uncompleted segment in Hoboken is along a section of industrial waterfront owned by Union Dry Dock. In this area, a very narrow sidewalk is shared by thousands of people who enjoy the waterfront.

The temporary multiuse path will occupy the parking lane on the east side of Sinatra Drive from the skate park to Sinatra Drive North and will be delineated with barricades and cones.
