Hudson Place traffic concerns
In the last week, Hoboken411 reader “Litterboken” had expressed some concerns about the intersection at Hudson Street and Hudson Place, considering it a “death trap”.
You can see some of the comments on the New Stop Sign post in the last week.
Planning to collect signatures yesterday, the reader found out some information about what may happen at that intersection:
I had truly planned to get myself out today, petitioning citizens and demanding that a stop sign or light be put up at this potential deathtrap of an intersection. However, before dragging my card table down to the Starbucks, I spoke to kindly Hoboken Information czar Bill (or Bob?) Carpenter, ext. 2222. He told me that the City has indeed applied for a traffic sign be put up there, but now we’re waiting on the state to complete a “traffic study” of the intersection. He reminded me it took 2 years to get that light at the PATH. But there is indeed a confirmed order in, so here’s to hoping our luck crossing the street holds out in the meantime.
I told him I would spread the word, since many people were curious and there wasn’t anything official known, and naturally turn to you to help in that respect.
Thanks for the site!!
