Downtown Hightstown Walkability

On May 28, a team of 20 volunteers evaluated over 120 intersections, 360 crossings and a majority of sidewalks in Hightstown. The team was supported by DowntownHightstown.org, the Hightstown Parks and Recreation Department and Mayor Bob Patten.

The team mapped all of the crossings before the event. Volunteers have since helped to enter all of the data from the assessment and are in the process of naming many hundreds of photos, each of which represents a needed improvement. This data is the foundation for two objectives: 1) an online walkability map of pedestrian-friendly routes and gaps in infrastructure and 2) a prioritized list of needed improvements. The goal is to encourage people to walk more and advocate for a more walkable community.
