Newest uptown Hoboken waterfront walkway

Hudson County building connecting path

A little placeholder for the “future” walkway that will eventually connect Hoboken to the rest of the Hudson River walkway to the north. Hudson County is handling the construction of this part.

the timbers are left there just for now to prevent further erosion. the final design drawings i’ve seen show the typical sheet steel bulkhead going in with large rip-rap stones in a slope extending in front of it. after that starts getting installed the timbers will be pulled out – if they haven’t fallen in already. but everyone here is right to be concerned. hoboken is too small of a town to be able to afford to maintain all this costly infrastructure. hopefully whatever happens/happened with Maxwell Place will lead to some meaningful portion of those annual maintenance moneys going into some capital maintenance account so AT LEAST that portion of the waterfront has a piggy bank which can be tapped. I am guessing the cost of piers is so great, and bulkheads so expensive that is why Weehawken has gone with the very boring but much less expensive waterfront park design… or maybe they just arent that creative or else use the money to grease the county democratic machine somehow…comment image

I wonder if they’re going to use the same engineer and contractor as they did for the road that collapsed.

Those bulkheads are rotting. If they are not replaced, it is only a matter of time before the whole thing tumbles into the river.
