Great Falls Circulation Study
Project Description

The Great Falls Circulation Study is a plan to improve
circulation for pedestrians, bicyclists and drivers in the
vicinity of the Great Falls National Historical Park in
Paterson, New Jersey. The study is being sponsored
by Passaic County and the North Jersey Transportation
Planning Authority.

The Circulation Study will identify improvement
scenarios to address deficiencies that hamper access
to recreation areas and public open space, and seeks
a balance among circulation needs of local residents,
heritage tourism, business activity, and regional traffic
flows through the City of Paterson.
Key Study Tasks
  • Engage the community to gather input on local transportation needs and objectives
  • Identify ways of improving pedestrian and bicycle access to the Great Falls National Historical Park
  • Develop and test options for better traffic circulation within the study area
  • Identify a circulation plan that benefits all parties: local residents, visitors to the Great Falls National
  • Historical Park, and area commuters

The Passaic County Department of Planning and Economic Development is pleased to present the Draft Final Report and Summary Report for the Great Falls Circulation Study.
