This initiative is currently on hold by the NJ Department of Transportation. Once more information is available it will be passed along.
Recently Mayor and Council approved a "Slow Streets" pilot for some streets in Princeton. Slow Streets are low traffic, local streets designated mainly for exercise, recreation and travel by pedestrians and bicycle riders. This initiative will help maintain social distancing during this pandemic.
These streets will still be accessible to local vehicular traffic only, not thru traffic.
- Local traffic includes residents, visitors, deliveries, emergency and other services.
- Current parking rules will apply.
- Within the next couple of weeks, temporary traffic calming devices will be placed at each of the neighborhood’s entrances, allowing space for local traffic to enter and exit.
- Signs will be posted to alert drivers to pedestrians, children, and other non-vehicle road users, and explain the rules for Slow Streets.
