Stevens Students offer transportation ideas
The transportation brains of the future
Earlier this month, Stevens Institute of Technology Civil Engineering students took part in a meeting at Arthur’s Tavern to discuss various improvements that are possible within many modes of transportation.
The Institute of Transportation Engineers organized the meeting with over 60 members attending.
Many ideas including Washington Street!
Stevens Transportation Professor Leon Goodman managed the program, and attendees viewed presentations given by four students – which all concerned issues facing the NY/NJ area:
- Matthew Larson talked about converting the express lanes on the Garden State Expressway to HOV lanes.
- Nicholas Lowe conceived a plan to transform the PATH into a “people mover system.”
- Kaitlynn White-Breit suggested countdown pedestrian signals for New York’s Time Square (similar to those in Hoboken).
- Andrew Gennaro presented ways to improve traffic flow on Washington Street in the Mile Square.
411 Money Saving Idea: Cut $140k from the Hoboken budget by scrapping the “Transportation Director” and enlisting students from our local engineering school to submit multiple projects on an annual basis (for school credit of course!)
