Congestion and Safety Near New Brunswick Station

The direct objective of this project is to determine the congestion and safety effects of pedestrian and driver noncompliance with traffic regulations at signalized intersections in New Brunswick, New Jersey. The goal is to quantify the effect of different types of "noncompliance events" (e.g., pedestrians blocking traffic, or vehicles blocking other vehicles), by analyzing two signalized intersections: Albany Street (NJ 27) at Easton Avenue (CR 514) and at George Street (Middlesex CR 672). The project will lead in coordination with the Director of Middlesex County Planning. The study will provide recommendations to the City of New Brunswick, and the County of Middlesex (the owner of these intersections) on ways to manage congestion and the demands from multiple modal users.
