City of Asbury Park Announces Design of Traffic Calming Measures for 3rd and 4th Avenues to Begin Thanks to Safe Routes to School Grant
10/9/20, Asbury Park, NJ – The City of Asbury Park has been authorized by the New Jersey Department of Transportation (NJDOT) to begin design work on traffic calming measures for 3rd and 4th Avenues. The improvements are funded by $500,000 in federal grants under the Safe Routes to School (SRTS) program in partnership with the North Jersey Transportation Planning Authority (NJTPA).
The design effort, which will be led by consulting engineering firm NV5, is anticipated to be completed by summer 2021 with construction beginning soon thereafter. Pedestrian safety measures will be focused on 3 main areas of resident concern:
“City Council has heard feedback from residents regarding pedestrian safety in the area and we know speeding is an issue,” said Mayor John Moor, “We’re thrilled to be able to move forward with this project to address these issues and improve our City’s transportation infrastructure.”
