What benefits have we already seen from Complete Streets?
The Complete Streets project is already resulting in tangible benefits to the safety and infrastructure of our downtown. Students in the area now have wide, safe sidewalks to walk on when they come downtown after school, where before they would be spilling into the street into traffic. The dangerous left turns that have caused so many serious accidents have already been eliminated. Restaurants that have been clamoring for outdoor café style seating have already begun to open their storefronts onto Main Street to increase the activity and vibrancy of our downtown. An amazing and successful Millburn Schools Ed Foundation event was held on the new Main Street event space, exactly as the design intended. We will continue to see the benefits increase as construction progresses toward completion.
