Community Outreach

The New Jersey Department of Transportation (NJDOT) realizes that community participation is an integral part of all stages of projects, therefore a comprehensive Public Involvement Action Plan (PIAP) (pdf 564k) has been developed for this project. A PIAP developed in Final Design provides a program that promotes the public's decision-making role in developing projects, programs and plans. A PIAP also helps build public support and engages the public in the implementation of the preferred alternative while addressing identified public concerns.

Community outreach strategies listed in the PIAP include:

  • Local Officials Briefings
  • Public Information Center meetings
  • Stakeholder meetings and workshops
  • Project specific Web site
  • NJDOT announcements and mailings
