Pedestrian Safety Roadshow: Albany Street Bridge Corridor

Voorhees Transportation Center, New Jersey Department of Transportation, Federal Highway Administration, Robert Wood Johnson Foundation

"A Pedestrian Safety Roadshow was offered to the communities of New Brunswick and Highland Park and the Albany Street Bridge corridor was examined at the behest of the New Jersey Department of Transportation (NJDOT). The corridor has documented pedestrian safety issues and has long been a concern to both communities. The NJDOT through its staff and through the NJ Bicycle and Pedestrian Resource Project, funded by NJDOT and staffed by the Alan M. Voorhees Transportation Center (VTC), provided logistical support to FHWA representatives in performing the show and technical expertise in meeting follow-up. The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (RWJF) through its "NJ Walks and Bikes!" initiative also contributed staff time to make this project a success.

"The following document is a summary of the results of the Pedestrian Safety Roadshow. It is the hope of the FHWA, NJDOT, and VTC that this exercise can serve as a starting point for positive change to the Pedestrian environment of the Albany Street Bridge Corridor and the communities at large."
