Vision Zero upgrades will be implemented after repaving, including 12 painted curb extensions, one concrete curb extension, 46 high visibility crosswalks, ADA-compliant ramp upgrades, flexible bollards, and new striping.
“Upgrading Hoboken’s roadway infrastructure, with an emphasis on Vision Zero improvements, continue to be a priority,” Mayor Ravi Bhalla said in a statement.
“Our aggressive repaving schedule will make our streets safer and more accessible for all modes of transportation.”
Starting on Monday, May 2nd, the city will repave and upgrade Second Street from Clinton Street to River Street, Third Street from Park Avenue to Washington Street, and Sixth Street from Jackson Street to Madison Street.
No parking signs will be posted along those routes for the estimated days of milling and paving
Due to paving operations on Second Street, access to Municipal Garage B at 28 Second St. will be temporarily restricted on Monday, May 2, from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. and Wednesday, May 4, from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.
The project is part of the City’s 2022 Resurfacing and Complete Streets Program, in which 82 blocks of roads are scheduled to be upgraded by the end of this year.
More information about the project’s construction schedule will be posted on the City’s Construction Updates page here.
