Virtual Walk Down West Windsor’s Main Street


Join us as we take a videoed walk down Main Street in West Windsor, Rt 571, from the arboretum opposite the high school at Clarksville Road to the gateway to the Princeton Junction train station at Wallace Road. We’ll see just how close we are to having a sidewalk along the entire 0.7 mile stretch! It should be noted that we’re walking along the south side of 571, since the north side has almost no sidewalks. Only a few gaps exist, at:

  1. a house just before the Professional Center
  2. the Valero gas station
  3. the Schlumberger building
  4. Coldwell Banker building
  5. Sovereign Bank building

A crosswalk and pedestrian signal is missing across Alexander Road between the Valero and Shell gas stations. The curb ramp is too steep at the Sunoco station, but they’re missing at:

  1. the arboretum crossing 571 and Clarksville
  2. Windsor Plaza (ex-Acme) shopping center, crossing 571 at Sherbrooke

Sidewalk repair is needed for broken or raised slabs at:

  1. a house near Clarksville
  2. Windsor Plaza (ex-Acme) shopping center

And that’s all! Please join the West Windsor Bicycle and Pedestrian Alliance in encouraging the township to work with the responsible parties to complete our Main Street, making us a more pedestrian friendly community.
