Riverfront Meadow Coming Up

The US Army Corps of Engineers has completed construction of new steel and concrete bulkhead between Prospect Street and the  Jackson Street Bridge in the Ironbound. 

Even better, at the conclusion of bulkhead construction, the Army Corps granted the request of Newark Riverfront Regeneration to cover the site with topsoil and meadowgrass seed instead of gravel.

While it will take some time for the meadow to establish, and further environmental remediation will be required to open this area to the public, it’s nice to see a patch of green at the river’s edge. A vision of bigger things to come!
