Regional Waterfront Access and Downtown Circulation Study
The Jersey City Hudson River Waterfront has grown drastically over the past 10 years and will continue to grow in the foreseeable future. As a regional employment center of over 40,000 employees and the home to 30,000 residents, assuring reliable and sufficient multi-modal access is critical to the economic health of the region. Meanwhile, the 2003 NJDOT Bergen Arches Best Use Study determined that transportation improvements in downtown Jersey City are needed to ensure local mobility while maintaining regional access.
In order to ensure mobility and access to employment, recreation, cultural resources, and residences within downtown Jersey City, Stantec Consulting, Inc., in association with AKRF, Inc., Stump/Hausman, and Medina Consultants was commissioned by the Jersey City Division of City Planning with funding provided in part by the North Jersey Transportation Planning Authority to prepare the ‘Regional Waterfront Access and Downtown Circulation Study.’ This study is intended to identify specific deficiencies in the transportation network and opportunities for mobility improvements and make recommendations for specific transportation projects that will facilitate regional and local access and mobility to employment, recreational, and residential development in downtown Jersey City.
