Description

This is the SW corner of Baldwin Ave and 139 Upper Level.

As shown in the first photo, the turning radius here is approximately 50 feet. NJDOT guidelines (see second photo) indicate that 15 feet is sufficient for vehicles and anything larger increases risk to pedestrians.

50 feet is far too wide for an area with heavy pedestrian usage. This road must be redesigned.
