The Newark Downtown Circulation Improvement Study evaluates the downtown street network & envisions improvements designed to keep Newark economically competitive while providing a safe transportation experience. The data-driven study identifies improved pedestrian, bicycle, vehicle, & transit opportunities that balance demand across all modes, improve transportation equity, & maximize the use of available resources.
Join us as we discuss the study & look beyond it to examine advanced technologies & imagine the role of automation, virtual assistants & the Emotional or Symbiotic web that would allow an individualized customer experience.
