Safe streets took a step forward with the building out of two demonstration projects that calm traffic and make the streets more pedestrian friendly. The project is part of Hudson Connects, a $4m State-funded DRI project. The City of Hudson is partnering with Arterial and Street Plans and worked with more than 50 community volunteers and artist Kirby Crone to transform two important intersections and test what may be possible.
The installation at the Front Street and Warren Street intersection will last until the next rainfall while the one at State Street and 2nd Street will last through the winter and into next year. Arterial will be monitoring these intersections with Creighton Manning Engineering, LLP over the next several weeks and months which will help to inform the final design. The team will be studying how these temporary improvements impact both vehicular and pedestrian behavior.
Give your feedback and help shape the next phase of the project.
Over the next several months, a plan will be developed for the City's waterfront BRIDGE District and connecting areas that will lay the groundwork for the construction of a portion of the plan along with future capital improvements.
