The $230 million Rebuild By Design project, which aims to curb flooding in parts of Hoboken, Weehawken and Jersey City, hit another major milestone late last week when the Department of Environmental Protection announced what they’ll be building and what it will look like, although the benefits of the undertaking are still a few years away.
Just 4 years ago, Jersey City was struggling to connect bike paths to Hoboken. Now that seems so, pardon the pun, pedestrian, as JC is now part of a 3000-mile bike path connecting Maine to Key West!
Despite Hoboken’s revitalization over the years, there always seems to be one common complaint about the city from both residents and visitors alike: parking. The lack of available spaces to park on the street, along with somewhat confusing signage, has been a gripe for several decades. But by the end of this year, Hoboken should be close to finishing an overhaul of their street parking system that officials hope betters the situation.
At last night’s city council meeting, Hoboken’s elected officials quickly approved funding for the revitalization of Washington Street, quite literally paving the way for relief to one of the city’s most pothole-ridden roads.
The visionaries are at it again. A new proposal has surfaced that conceptualizes a twin suspension bridge connecting New Jersey with Queens via Manhattan. Could this be the answer to our woes?
