Conceptual renderings are also useful to envision what a community could look like with Complete Streets. These photo simulations below were completed by the Fairmount Complete Streets Studio at the Edward J. Bloustein School of Planning and Public Policy in Spring 2013. These renderings of the Fairmount neighborhood in Newark were part of the course’s final product, which was submitted to the Urban League of Essex County.
Existing Conditions on South Orange Avenue in Newark, NJ
Bike lanes, street trees, and a reconstructed sidewalk would help to complete South Orange Avenue
Another section of South Orange Avenue currently lacks facilities for bicyclists and features an uneven sidewalk
Bicycle lanes, a pedestrian refuge, and reconstructed sidewalks would help enhance this portion of South Orange Avenue for all road users
Broken sidewalks and wide streets make this portion of South Orange Avenue unfriendly to pedestrians
Fixing the sidewalk, adding bicycle lanes, and implementing traffic calming measures would greatly improve this segment of South Orange Avenue for everyone
