The New Jersey Safe Routes Program, supported by the New Jersey Department of Transportation, is a statewide initiative with a mission to partner with schools and communities to prioritize and implement opportunities for people to walk, bike, or travel by other wheeled devices. By focusing on improvements to support active travel by youth, we believe we can create conditions that are safe, healthy, equitable, and appealing for all.

The project will result in sidewalk installation where none exists and curb and other as needed pedestrian safety improvements (ADA curb ramps, detectable warning surfaces, crosswalks, signage, etc) as needed at the following locations:

The project locations include:

  • Maple Street from Central Avenue to The Fellsway
  • The Fellsway from Maple Street to Elm Street
  • Spring Street from the railroad tracks to Central Avenue
