What is that? That is the question residents and visitors have when they cross the intersection of South Bridge Avenue and Drs. James Parker Boulevard in Red Bank.
In the center of the asymmetrical four-way intersection, a large yellow sun on a turquoise background has been painted. Municipal officials have said the mural is a temporary traffic calming measure that is intended to deteriorate over time.
According to a June 3 statement from Melissa Hayes, Senior Manager of Outreach at the NJTPA, “We provided Red Bank with $10,000 in technical assistance for this project through our Complete Streets Technical Assistance Program. Sustainable Jersey and the Voorhees Transportation Center at Rutgers University provided the technical assistance as part of our program.”
