Upcoming Meetings to Comment on the NJ Bike Map

Even Lance needs to check the map sometimes
NJDOT is holding a series of meetings to introduce and discuss the final draft of the New Jersey Statewide Bicycle Map and Resource Guide. In addition to attending the meetings, interested members of the public can comment on the maps via the NJ Bike Map Project website.

The bike map is intended to be a resource for education, advocacy, and trip planning. It includes locations of bike lanes and major multi-use trails. Roads are graded as Most Suitable, Moderately Suitable, and Least Suitable. The three grades for evaluated roads is not unlike the ratings for the BCGP regional bike map, but  with a different methodology being used the road ratings may differ on the respective maps.

Three meetings will be held in the North, South and Central parts of the state:

Tuesday, April 24
The George Luciano Family Center
Cumberland County College
Vineland, NJ

Thursday, April 26
Frelinghuysen Arboretum
53 East Hanover Avenue
Morristown, NJ

Thursday, May 10
NJDOT Headquarters
1035 Parkway Avenue
Trenton, NJ
