Howard Boulevard Traffic Safety Improvement Study

Overhead map of Howard BoulevardThe Howard Boulevard Traffic Safety Improvement Study will analyze the existing conditions and develop recommendations for improving vehicular and pedestrian safety on Howard Boulevard (CR 615) from Seasons Drive to the intersection of I-80 eastbound off-ramp/NJ Transit Train Station Access Driveway in Mount Arlington. Morris County has hired Johnson, Mirmiran & Thompson to conduct the study.

There are three signalized intersections and several driveways within the study limits. The three traffic signals are maintained by the NJDOT, while Howard Boulevard (CR 615) is under Morris County’s jurisdiction. The existing conditions to be collected and analyzed will include crash history and safety, traffic volume, turning movements at intersections and driveways, speed limits, and traffic signal timing. There will be several public meetings during the study to share findings and gather feedback. The data and public feedback will be used to help develop a final report containing short and long term recommendations and four concept plans for improving safety along the corridor.

  • Take the Survey – Morris County and the project team invite the traveling public to provide feedback on existing conditions and potential improvements in the study area.
