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!
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.
