New traffic control measure in Southwest Hoboken
City of Hoboken announces:
CITY IMPLEMENTS INTERIM TRAFFIC CONTROL MEASURES IN
The Department of Transportation and Parking will be installing additional “Don’t block the box” signage and additional roadway striping to improve visibility at the intersection of
Monroe Street/Observer Highway/Paterson Plank Road and assist in enforcement. “Don’t block the box” is a state statute that prohibits vehicles from queuing within an intersection.
This is a short-term measure while the Subregional Transportation Study which is centered on
Southwest Hoboken is finalized in late spring/early summer 2011.
“I’m looking forward to the results of the traffic study, but in the mean time, I’m happy to see the Department of Transportation and Parking taking appropriate short term measures to address traffic concerns in this area,” said Mayor
Dawn Zimmer. “The improvements will be complete by the end of next week.”
