MONTCLAIR, NJ -- The Montclair Streets Are For Everyone (SAFE), New Jersey Department of Transportation (NJDOT) bicycle and pedestrian planning assistance project will host an open house to present a draft plan for making Montclair streets safer and more accessible for people walking and biking. The event will take place Wednesday, March 8, 7:00-9:00 p.m. in the second floor conference room of the Montclair Municipal Building, 205 Claremont Avenue.

 

Township Engineer Kim Craft encourages anyone interested in improving the walking and bicycling experience in Montclair to attend.

 

“Montclair is already a walkable town," said Ms. Craft. "This is a great opportunity to enhance accessibility for all by making our streets even better for getting around on foot or by bike.”

The NJDOT awarded Montclair this planning assistance grant to develop a menu of options for improving our streets for pedestrian and bicycle travel in the community. Working with a steering committee of township volunteers and staff, NJDOT’s consultant, NVS, developed the draft plan. An earlier workshop and survey provided the public the opportunity to share thoughts and opinions on current roadway conditions which helped produce the recommended priority network and street typologies.

 

The March 8 open house is a final opportunity for the public to review the proposed plan to improve the future of walking and biking in Montclair. Select details of the draft plan are available below.
