|Route 70 Corridor Study|
Brick Township, NJ
BSG conducted an analysis of NJ Route 70 between NJ Route 88 and Cedar Bridge Road in the Township of Brick. The study also included the analysis of Brick Boulevard, Chambers Bridge Road, and Cedar Bridge Road, all Ocean County roadways. Traffic volume data was collected at seven intersections during the weekday peak hours and adjusted for a common peak hour. The roadway network was placed in a network simulation program using Synchro to analyze traffic conditions and traffic flow during the peak hours. Various concepts were then developed to address traffic congestion hot spots along the corridors. The concepts required reassignment of traffic volumes as necessary and simulations run for each concept alternative.
The study and various alternatives were presented to the public and an alternative recommended. The alternative was then implemented and coordinated with the New Jersey Department of Transportation and Ocean County.
