Public Meeting Scheduled for Bike and Pedestrian Plan

 

By Press Release

CAPE MAY – The New Jersey Department of Transportation (NJDOT) Office of Bicycle and Pedestrian Programs is seeking input from Cape May City and Cape May Point Borough residents and visitors as part of its ongoing study of bicycle and pedestrian conditions throughout and linking between the two communities.  The Public Meeting will be held June 3, 2017 from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Cape May City Hall Auditorium.
Through a grant from NJDOT’s Local Bicycle/Pedestrian Planning Assistance Program, Cape May and Cape May Point are finalizing BikeWalk Cape May, a joint bicycle and pedestrian plan that seeks to improve mobility and safety for non-motorized traffic.  This plan included a detailed review and inventory of pedestrian and bicycle traffic generators, crashes, and overall conditions at major intersections and along key corridors.  Following that review, a series of conceptual recommendations have been developed to address many existing deficient conditions.  Ultimately, the recommendations are intended to create a robust bicycle and pedestrian network that better links the two communities, enhances connections between neighborhoods and key destinations, expands the existing on-street bicycle network, leverages the communities’ historic and natural assets, and enhances Cape May and Cape May Point as major tourist destinations.
BikeWalk Cape May is a part of ongoing efforts by Cape May City, Cape May Point and NJDOT to implement their Complete Streets policies. 
The event will be conducted as an open house, where the public is welcome to stop by at their convenience to review the study findings, maps, and graphics.  Residents will also have the opportunity to ask questions of the consultant team and comment on the study findings.
