The Township of Irvington received an $800k federal grant for streetscape improvements to the Springfield Avenue corridor, one of Essex County’s major arterial roads that link many smaller urban centers to downtown Newark. New Jersey Transit recently completed a significant renovation and expansion to a regional bus terminal that serves the Greater Newark’s bus rapid transit lines. One of it’s busiest facilities, this terminal is located within Irvington’s commercial corridor and has contributed to a very busy pedestrian strip.
Arterial has been commissioned to design 6 city blocks that enhance
the public realm through ADA compliance, branding and identity and sustainability. With careful consideration to the level of maintenance and sustainability, the design is a high impact, cost effective solution that works within the means of the township. Providing a layer of pedestrian level detail, the design brings a en on to the history of the township through thoughtful quotes from it’s namesake. Sustainable tree pits are designed to allow for maximum growth area and storm water infiltration on while minimizing the potential for heaving sidewalks. Other improvements include new lighting, banners, ADA compliant corners, street furniture and ergo-crosswalks.
