Hoboken Paving Update

Uptown Paving Project in Hoboken causes injury to resident

Hoboken resident Michael sent these photos in of the sidewalk that’s part of the uptown paving project on Clinton Street between 14th & 15th.

“This is the base of a sign that was cut down on Clinton & 14th. For some reason they decided to cut it down a day after they replaced the sidewalk. My girlfriend did not see it last night and cut open her big toe.

I could barely see it after the fact since there was a car park blocking the street light. After I threw the bucket over it to cover it up and prevent any further injuries.

This is a lawsuit waiting to happen.”

Who leaves razor-sharp metal protrusions in the sidewalk anyway?

Over-optimistic paving schedule drags on in uptown Hoboken

May 30, 2011:

A few streets in Hoboken are getting resurfaced – thanks to “gifts” (i.e., grants) – and these projects were not budgeted for by the city and your massive property tax bills.

Two such streets (which were supposed to be long completed in mid-May) are Clinton St. and Adams St. between 14th & 15th Streets. Sure these were bad roads – but very far from the main areas of town (which should have had higher priority).

Either way, delays on Clinton Street (cobblestone complications), pushed that back nearly a month – and Adams St. resurfacing may begin as soon as this week. Funny that Grand Street wasn’t included – which houses an active business (Carpe Diem Bar & Restaurant) – and has real people walking on the street (and to the Clearview Cinemas, etc).

Par for the course in Hoboken, once again.

@eric – not only is the street bad but the speed bump at the corner of Madison and 6th is gone so the cars speed up and race down the block between 6th and 7th. Sure wish they would replace it or else just sit a cop at that intersection to write tickets – would be a gold mine.

All the development has really taken a toll on our roads – the heavy machinery does quite a lot of damage. Just drive down Monroe and you can correlate the bumps with the sewage work for each of the newer or renewed properties. Does anyone know if the city get some money for paving from these folks?

I think there is a plumbing supply on that street also.

Has anyone dared to drive on Madison Street from Newark down to 15th ??? I think that might be the worst road in the entire state of New Jersey.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
