Willow Avenue Complete Streets Redesign

Overview

Hudson County is preparing to resurface Willow Avenue (a County road) between 11th Street and 13th Street. Pedestrian safety is of paramount importance along this corridor featuring high volumes of two of the city’s most vulnerable demographics — children and seniors. In accordance with the City’s and County’s Complete Streets Policies, planning is underway to make this segment of Willow Avenue a Complete Street that is safe and accommodating for all types of roadway users.

The proposed design features new high-visibility crosswalks, “low-cost” curb extensions that reduce pedestrian crossing distances, bicycle lanes to help calm traffic and reduce speeding, and back-in angle parking for safer parking and unloading.

Observer Highway

Overview

The City of Hoboken has $1,800,000 in federal funding, thanks to Senator Robert Menendez, to make safety improvements to Observer Highway between Marin Boulevard and Hudson Street.

The City developed a Complete Streets Redesign for this segment of Observer Highway using community feedback received at previous meetings in the summer of 2010 and 2011 while incorporating the goals and recommendations of Hoboken’s Master Plan, Complete Streets Policy, and Bicycle/
Pedestrian Master Plan.

This project will feature two new signalized intersections with crosswalks and curb extensions, roadway resurfacing, and a protected multi-use path for pedestrians and two-way bicycle traffic.
