Hoboken May Encourage Walking

A Raleigh man’s project to encourage people to park their cars and walk is taking off, with a New Jersey city adopting his plans and places across the world seeking his help.

On a January night, Matt Tomasulo and friends put up 27 signs at three intersections in Raleigh advising people how long it takes to walk to various locations.

The signs were part of Tomasulo’s master’s project and were so well-made that city officials assumed someone had authorized them.

They include a QR code that downloads directions on smart phones.

Raleigh eventually took down the signs, but they went back up this week as a pilot project. And the city of Hoboken, N.J., is looking into using similar signs.

Tomasulo also has interest from people in other countries.
