Additional Information: This project focuses on environmental, design, and regulatory aspects of planning two components of Rutgers 2030: Rutgers University Physical Master Plan the Raritan River boardwalk and the bicycle/pedestrian bridge across the river. Together, these projects will help reestablish an intimate relationship between the City of New Brunswick, Rutgers University, and the Raritan River. These 2030 Plan components propose to (1) enhance bicycle and pedestrian access between Livingston and College Avenue campuses via a new bicycle/footbridge across the Raritan, and (2) reconnect the Delaware and Raritan canal and trail network at the north end of College Avenue campus with Boyd Park and the Rutgers Boathouse at the foot of Douglass campus via a boardwalk on the New Brunswick side of the river. This studio explores issues related to planning, regulation, environmental conditions, public access, and policy around the proposed boardwalk and pedestrian bridge projects. Together, the group developed a comprehensive report that analyzes these projects through mapping exercises, detailed characterization, public access goals, and concepts to consider.
