More than 30 Ironbound residents and business owners participated in an Open House at the Prospect Street Fire Station Arts Center to discuss pedestrian and bicycle safety in Newark and the Ironbound District.
“The creation of the City of Newark’s Pedestrian and Bicycle Safety Action Plan will help us improve safety at our most dangerous intersections and corridors, and create strategies, performance measures and policies to address pedestrian and bicycle safety throughout the City,” noted Jack M. Nata, Manager, Division of Traffic and Signals for the City of Newark.Read more...
An Open House has been scheduled for Wednesday, November 12th from 6:00 p.m. till 8:00 p.m. at the ProspectStreetFireStationArtsCenter (56 Prospect Street) in the Ironbound District. People are invited to stop in at any time during the Open House. A presentation will take place at 7:00 p.m.
The event will foster communication about pedestrian and bicycle safety and the sharing of information from the “Be Street Smart NJ” campaign to help keep Ironbound residents, workers and visitors safe whether they are walking or driving on the City ofNewark’s busy streets. The issue is particularly important in the Ironbound, which has eight of the top ten highest auto-pedestrian accident areas in the City.
The North Jersey Transportation Planning Authority (NJTPA) and the City of Newark are working together with local partners like the Ironbound Business Improvement District (IBID) to develop a Pedestrian and Bicycle Safety Plan. This federally-funded project is being undertaken because the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) has identified Newark as a PedestrianFocusCity, meaning the frequency and severity of pedestrian and bicycle crashes needs to be reduced.Read more...
