Bikeways

I would like to thank all the mayors, clerks, municipal and consultant engineers, administrators, and others who have worked with us to submit your Resolutions of Support for your Municipal Aid, Bikeways, Safe Streets to Transit and/or Transit Village applications into our new PMRS.  As this is a new system, we recognize that some people have still not gotten the message although we had multiple training sessions and have been publicizing this for quite some time.  Our staff has been working overtime to assist in any way possible.  At this time, we want to assist your municipality, or county so that your applications are still viable.  We will extend the deadline for two weeks so that everyone can get their electronic Resolution submitted. Get started immediately by:
  1. contacting the Resource Center at 609-649-9395 or emailing DOT-LocalAID.ResourceCenter@dot.nj.gov
  2. contacting your Local Aid District Office; Or
  3. go to the Resource Center Website for a how to video:  www.njdotlocalaidrc.com
Please reach out immediately. The deadline is August 18th.

The New Jersey Department of Transportation’s (NJDOT) Bikeway Grant Program provides funds to counties and municipalities to promote bicycling as an alternate mode of transportation in New Jersey. A primary objective of the Bikeway Grant Program is to support the State’s goal of constructing 1,000 new miles of dedicated bike paths (facilities that are physically separated from motorized vehicular traffic by an open space or barrier either within the highway right of way or within an independent right of way). In an effort to establish regionally connected bicycle networks, this program is available to every municipality and county throughout New Jersey. Although priority will be given to construction of new bike paths, the proposed construction or delineation of any new bicycle facility will be considered.
