ABOUT GRAND STREET 

As a main thoroughfare within Jersey City, Grand Street serves as a vital transportation corridor connecting diverse and growing neighborhoods from Bergen-Lafayette to Exchange Place and providing access to Liberty State Park and the Hudson River Waterfront Walkway bike/walk path.

 

WHY THIS STUDY?  

Grand Street is a vehicle-oriented roadway with vehicle speeds regularly exceeding the posted speed limit, and is among the roadways with the highest rates of pedestrian and motor vehicle crashes in the City. The current roadway design also deprives cyclists of the cross-town connections needed to fully utilize the network of existing bike lanes on smaller streets.  grand_1 

Jersey City is undertaking a Concept Development Study that utilizes advanced street redesign techniques to enhance safety conditions along Grand Street and improve the balance between all transportation modes, including vehicles, pedestrians, cyclists, and transit users. 


 

SCHEDULE  

The Grand Street Concept Development Study began in May 2017. Once completed in Fall 2017, the study will recommend concepts to move forward into implementable projects.
