Red Bank’s ‘Broadwalk’ Ends, Opening Street to Vehicular Traffic

Red Bank’s popular “Broadwalk,” created to assist Red Bank restaurants and businesses during the pandemic, has come to an end after a successful turnout this past summer and fall. With Broad Street closed to traffic and many shops unable to have in-store customers, businesses were able to set tables up outside and bring in otherwise lost revenue.

The Broadwalk, spanning Broad Street and a section of White Street, lasted a total of five months. As winter rolled around, there was a growing concern from council surrounding snowfall and the movement of the concrete barriers.

Restaurants that utilized parking stalls in front of their businesses may continue to do so, allowing patrons to enjoy outdoor dining. These barriers must be moved after snowfall, however, to ensure plows can maneuver through the area safely.

Broad Street is now open to traffic seven days a week.

There is talk of a proposal for the Broadwalk to reoccur in 2021, so if you didn’t get the chance to dine out on Broad Street over the summer, you may be able to next year!
