On Tuesday, the Bicycle Coalition of Greater Philadelphia attended the New Jersey Complete Streets Conference and were honored, while there, to receive three awards for our advocacy work.
First, we were recognized as Complete Streets Champions at the Summit, for our work in complete streets in New Jersey. Over the past year, we’ve worked with officials and community leaders in Camden, Gloucester, Mercer, and Burlington, as well as the cities of Camden and Trenton, to raise money for Circuit Trails, and develop citywide bicycle and pedestrian plans.
Additionally, the Circuit Trails and the Benjamin Franklin Bridge South Walkway Bicycle and Pedestrian Ramp won Complete Streets Excellence Awards at the conference, for which the Bicycle Coalition was honored as one of several organizations responsible for those projects.
