Hudson Parking Rule adjustment & Hoboken road work alert!
City of Hoboken announces:
Section of Hudson Street to Return to Parallel Parking
Due to potential liability concerns, parking along Hudson Street between 2nd Street and 4th Street will change from angled to parallel parking, as it was traditionally configured approximately ten years ago.
Hudson County began their resurfacing program in mid-April, including this portion of Hudson Street.
As noted in a memo from Transportation and Parking Director Ian Sacs, P.E. to Mayor Dawn Zimmer, “the angled parking configuration conflicts with county, state, and national roadway design guideline criteria” and does not provide sufficient width “to safely accommodate through vehicles. Due to this condition, Hudson County would not recommend returning to angled parking.”
Because of the liability concerns, Director Sacs recommends “returning the street to the original parallel parking configuration on both sides.” All members of the City Council Transportation and Parking Sub-Committee have been briefed on the issue are in agreement with the recommendation.
Talking Ed Note: A reader submitted a photo of a flyer from Councilwoman Theresa Castellano on Friday stating the angled parking was being changed.
