The borough has been awarded $150,000 from the New Jersey Department of Transportation for pedestrian safety improvements
The borough has received a $150,000 grant from the New Jersey Department of Transportation to make pedestrian safety improvements along the Broadway corridor. The money will go toward creating a Broadway bump-out or bump-outs, like the type that exist on River Road, borough manager Tom Metzler said. Bump-outs, also known as curb extensions, are used as traffic calming devices on busy roadways. Their purpose is to provide an additional element to shield vehicles parked on the street and enable pedestrians to make shorter, safer crossings at intersections.
