We are moving forward on our most important current initiative -- pushing for the redesign of dangerous streets.
We presented our redesign plans for the Grand Street corridor (Grand Street Vision
) at the the Jersey City Council meeting on December 14th, where there was a strong show of support from the Jersey City bicycling community.
The Council passed a unanimous vote (9-0) for resolution 16.851 which requests the City of Jersey City Division of Engineering to study and prepare plans for a safety and accessibility redesign of Grand Street, to include advanced design techniques such as a "road diet", pedestrian safety features, and protected bike lanes, as appropriate. Council offered and moved adoption of the resolution. View an image of the resolution here.
