Lesss greening than originally hoped

The Daily Targum reports that budget realities have forced the Greening of College Ave to get scaled back some:
Upcoming transformations to the College Avenue and Livingston campuses would have a dramatic impact on the feel of the New Brunswick campus, he said.
But the College Avenue Greening Project has been scaled back from plans, which called for a portion of the street to be confined to buses and emergency vehicles.
“I’m sort of deflated by [the street remaining two-ways], because where I started was a vision for a pedestrian College Avenue without vehicular traffic,” McCormick said.
he Greening Project will now include a major landscape architecture renovation, he said.
“We will replace the ugly bus stop in front of the College Avenue Gym, we will get rid of the parking meters on College Avenue … and it will look a whole lot better, but the basic transportation aspects will not be changed,” McCormick said.
