Take Action to Help Fund New Jersey Circuit Trails

    • circuit takeaction 480x385

Supporters of Circuit trails in New Jersey - Speak Up!

Are you fond of the Delaware and Raritan trail and can't wait to see it complete from Trenton to Bordentown?  Do you use the Cooper River Trail but wish there was a seamless bike/ped trail between the Ben Franklin Bridge and Haddonfield?  These are just a few of the many trails that are part of the Circuit in Mercer, Burlington, Camden and Gloucester counties that are awaiting funds for planning, design and construction.

Now, there is a major opportunity for Circuit supporters to send a message to their elected officials to dedicate transportation funding for Circuit trails in Mercer, Burlington, Camden and Gloucester counties.  

The Draft DVRPC Fiscal Year (FY) 2016 Transportation Improvement Program (TIP) for New Jersey (FY2016-2019) is out for public comment.  It lays out the transportation priorities for the four New Jersey counties in the Greater Philadelphia region. The deadline for sending a comment is August 10th.

Please take a moment to contact your county freeholders to create a "line item" for Circuit Trails in the FY2016 TIP.

Thank you for taking action for the Circuit!

Wenonah, NJ Passes The First Circuit Resolution

3 cheers for Wenonah! The tiny borough in Gloucester County became the first municipality to adopt a resolution to support more funding for completing the Circuit. Our thanks goes out to Borough Council, Scott Barnes of the Wenonah Environmental Commission for drafting the resolution and to Action Wheels bike shop co-owner Patty Woodworth for her tireless advocacy.

We hope that Wenonah's resolution can serve as a template for a resolution in your own town. Help us connect the Circuit by participating in the Circuit Committment Campaign.

Connecting Gloucester Trails and Complete Streets Workshop

Connecting Gloucester
Trails, Bike/Pedestrian and Complete Streets 
for Gloucester County Communities

Saturday, May 11

9:00am - 12:00pm
Harrison Township Municipal Building 
114 Bridgeton Pike
Mullica Hill, NJ
Bike and pedestrian planning has come a long way in the last few decades, and connectivity and complete streets principles are, at last, being integrated into land use planning at almost every level in New Jersey. Bike lanes, sidewalks and multi-use trails segments are popping up everywhere, though often not joined together. The work that remains is to build on and connect existing networks, fill in gaps, and implement programs that will make it safe and enjoyable for residents, young and old, to integrate biking and walking into their everyday activities. Local linkages and participation are critical to create networks that work.
This workshop will cover:
  • the basics of bike/ped/trails planning at the municipal level, including a case study of
    how Harrison Township developed its new bike/ped plan;
  • existing grant programs and resources towns can tap to help with their plans and implementation;
  • a status report on The Circuit, the Delaware Valley's 750-mile regional trail network, and how Gloucester and other south Jersey counties are participating; and  
  • how local bike/ped plans and complete streets programs can support regional plans in Gloucester County and beyond. 


ANJEC Members $5
Non-Members and the general public $10

If your commission is on the ANJEC Workshop Plan there is no charge to attend.
