Regenerative Approach to River Road Corridor, Raritan Township

News | Raritan River Initiatives | Studio

This Fall, 2012, studio focused on a regenerative vision planning approach for an underutilized and difficult to access portion of waterfront along the South Branch of the Raritan River in Raritan Township (Hunterdon County).

The studio’s assignment was to develop a conceptual design framework to provide greater coherence and a thematic identity to the corridor, at the local, inter-municipal and county levels; unify public open space and historic resources; enhance public access to the riverfront at appropriate locations, for recreational, educational and eco-tourism purposes; identify options for developing a waterfront trail linked to major destinations; and study the local and county road system for recommendations to improve safety and multi-modal functions.
