Busy Intersection in Red Bank gets Temporary Safety Upgrades

June 5, 2019

The Borough recently installed a demonstration project — which is also referred to as tactical urbanism — to show the public what a reimagined intersection could look like before implementing any permanent changes. The intersection was painted bright green and yellow to draw attention to it and slow traffic. The project also includes an additional crosswalk, and paint was used to prohibit parking close to the intersection to increase visibility and safety.

Red Bank received services valued at $10,000 from Sustainable Jersey, the Voorhees Transportation Center at Rutgers University and the NJTPA for assistance in designing the project. The project is part of the NJTPA’s Complete Streets Technical Assistance Program, and is funded by the NJTPA. The technical assistance program is designed to support municipal government efforts to advance or implement complete streets, which are roads designed for all users, including vehicles, people walking, bicyclists and public transportation.

Voorhees Transportation Center staff will observe the project to determine its effectiveness and conduct surveys of passerby.
