Township staff are soliciting ideas for the submission of a NJDOT application of bikeway and transit access improvements.
Grants will be issued for construction only, not planning or operating costs. Connectivity to activity centers (schools, parks, transit stations, etc.) and local or regional bicycle systems (i.e. Cooper River Park, Voorhees Township Bicycle Routes, etc.) will be given preference.
We are seeking project recommendations from interested stakeholders, specifically from the SCH Way To Go committee members.
Applications are due soon, on August 13, 2010, so please send all ideas no later than next Friday, July 23rd.
Some existing plans and maps that may be helpful include:
These projects will be collected and discussed at an upcoming meeting.
Is it possible to meet before the scheduled Way To Go meeting this Tuesday, July 20, 2010 at 7pm? Or another convenient time?

Bikeway - This program is intended to fund bicycle projects. It is available to all counties
and municipalities. The Department continues to work toward the goal of achieving 1,000
miles of dedicated bikeways in New Jersey. Special consideration will be given to bikeways
that are physically separated from motorized vehicular traffic by an open space or barrier, but
on-road bike lanes and other bike routes and facilities are also eligible for funding.
Safe Streets to Transit - The intent of this program is to encourage counties and
municipalities to construct safe and accessible pedestrian linkages to transit facilities, in order
to promote increased usage of transit by all segments of the population.
