Broad Street runs through Hopewell in Mercer County where the town’s history is preserved, its unique character is showcased, and the town’s vibrancy and friendliness welcomes visitors and protects the small town feel for residents. Hopewell received funding assistance from two federal Transportation Enhancement grants for the streetscape improvement project through the New Jersey Department of Transportation, which enabled the town to implement the streetscape plan that has made Broad Street an attractive, pedestrian-friendly destination that features its local businesses.

Through sound planning and the combined efforts of local officials, business owners, and residents,Hopewell has retained Broad Street’s historic character while guiding it into a new era of market demand.The revitalization of Broad Street is particularly important because it demonstrates that the walkable communities of the past are indeed our future.
