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 need funding 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 ask that they create a “line item”in the FY2016 TIP so that funds can be dedicated for Circuit Trails.
Click here to send an email to your county representative! Hearing from constituents makes a big difference to elected officials and will help convince them to set aside transportation funds to build Circuit trails.
If you don’t live in New Jersey, but want to send an email comment on the NJ TIP as well, please email your comment to firstname.lastname@example.org
