Creating walkable and bikeable communities is a successful strategy for maintaining and restoring economic vitality and improving public health in any community. The New Jersey Department of Transportation (NJDOT) is committed to advancing projects that enhance safety, renew the aging infrastructure, improve pedestrian and bicycle infrastructure and supporting new and alternative transportation opportunities. Two funding opportunities are currently available, and workshops will be held to provide information, tips and strategies for a strong application.
