A Boulevard and Complete Street
for Route 440 and Routes 1&9T in Jersey City

The Route 440/Routes 1&9T Multi-Use Urban Boulevard and Through Truck Diversion Concept Development Study identifies a locally preferred alternative (LPA) for Route 440 Route 440 Graphic Verticaland Routes 1&9T that resolves current traffic congestion, and transforms the highway into a boulevard and complete street in the middle section, and into a complete street at the north and south ends. The boulevard and complete street will serve as the main street of the Western Waterfront, provide an attractive and vibrant public realm in support of new buildings that abut and face it, and interconnect a series of existing and new parks along the corridor with safe and attractive bicycle and pedestrian facilities. The boulevard and complete street will also accommodate the vehicular travel demands in the short, medium and long term that will be placed upon it by local and regional growth.

The study also finds that the anticipated growth in heavy through trucks (heavy trucks with neither an origin nor destination within the Western Waterfront) will be partially offset by a number of transportation infrastructure projects that are already in the works elsewhere in the region that will divert some through trucks away from the Western Waterfront. Additionally, the study identifies four potentially preferred through truck diversion alternatives that would further reduce the number of heavy through trucks within the Western Waterfront.
