Public Meeting: Marin Boulevard Safety Improvements (Jersey City)

Join us to learn about proposed improvements to Marin Boulevard (Montgomery Street to 6th Street) in Jersey City.

Jersey City recieved funding for design, construction and construction inspection services for this project through the NJTPA's Local Safety Program. This program is funded through the Federal Highway Safety Improvement Program Funds.

Project Background
This project is based on the December 2014 Marin Boulevard Road Safety Audit (RSA). The crash analysis performed as part of the RSA identified overrepresentations in non-daylight and wet roadway condition crashes, as well as same direction, right angle, left turn, and pedestrian crashes with the latter three crash types typically of higher injury severity than other crash types. Primary issues identified along Marin Boulevard include lack
of ADA compliant pedestrian facilities, traffic signal equipment and signs not in conformance with the latest
MUTCD, geometric misalignment at intersections, and lack of bicycle facilities.

Proposed Improvements
Proposed improvements for this project include providing a northbound 5-foot wide bicycle lane and a 3-foot
wide buffer with flexible delineators, pedestrian curb extensions, ADA compliant curb ramps and push buttons,
12-inch LED traffic signal heads, countdown pedestrian signal heads, MUTCD-compliant signing and pavement
markings, Title 39 compliant parking, geometrical improvements, sidewalk reconstruction and widening, and
a new traffic signal at the intersection of Marin Boulevard and Bay Street.

Right-of-Entry requests will be required to tie sidewalk improvements to existing sidewalk located outside
of the right-of-way. The existing intersections will remain open during construction and the duration of construction is anticipated to be one (1) year. The total cost to design this project is $0.6M and the total
estimated construction cost is $3.5M.
