Hudson County in coordination with the North Jersey Transportation Planning Authority (NJTPA) and the New Jersey Department of Transportation (NJDOT) are conducting an LCD study to determine appropriate improvements to JFK (Kennedy) Blvd. from Pavonia Avenue to St. Paul’s Avenue. The project goals are to enhance safety and improve operations for all modes of transportation. Similar efforts were undertaken on other portions of JFK (Kennedy) Boulevard; one of the projects abuts the southern limit of this project.
Communication with the local officials, stakeholders, road users and community will be necessary to advise on the need of the project and the impacts that they may encounter on this heavily used roadway.
The LCD Study is the first phase for federally funded transportation improvement projects. The LCPD Program provides funding to NJTPA sub regions—the 15 city and county members of the NJTPA—to prepare proposed transportation projects for eventual construction with federal funding.
This preparation involves completing the multi-step Capital Project Delivery Process developed by NJDOT. This process is designed to streamline project development and provide a common and consistent framework for federally funded projects at the local, regional and state level.
