Upgrades planned for waterfront walkway and bike path
The City of Hoboken and the South Waterfront Corporation are preparing upgrades to the walkway and bike paths on the South waterfront between Sinatra Drive and Newark Street, and along Pier A. The improvements include restoring the walkway surface, replacing of trees and vegetation, pedestrian and bicycle safety upgrades to enhance the waterfront experience for visitors and residents. Residents are invited to a community meeting on April 30 at the Multi-Service Center at 6:30 pm for the public to review concept plans. “Our waterfront is what makes our City special for both residents and visitors,” said Mayor Ravi S. Bhalla. “These upgrades will greatly enhance the experience when walking and biking along our waterfront, increase pedestrian safety, and improve the connectivity of our City.” The waterfront walkway project has two components: Waterfront walkway repair: The project will restore portions of the walkway along the waterfront from the intersection of Sinatra Drive and 4th Street to the intersection of Sinatra Drive and Newark Street. Upgrades are proposed to the railings, benches, lighting, and the planting of new trees and vegetation. Pedestrian and bicycle safety upgrades: The project will improve the South Waterfront bicycle path in the project area to enhance bicycle and pedestrian mobility, and provide a connection to the waterfront walkway at 4th Street and Newark Street. The design will include pedestrian safety improvements connecting to the west side of Sinatra Drive. Upgrades to the bicycle path will be considered, as well as additional tree plantings and vegetation east and west of the bicycle path. Last month, the South Waterfront Corporation, which jointly maintains the public and open space along the South Waterfront with the City, approved a contract with Kimley-Horn and subconsultant Engenuity to oversee the South Waterfront upgrades. The South Waterfront Corporation consist of the City of Hoboken, the Port Authority, Ironstate Development, SJP Properties, and Mack-Cali. The project team is currently completing a field review of existing conditions, including soil testing, and will host the public meeting on April 30. Posted on Nixle by the City of Hoboken.
