NJDOT awards $3 million in municipal Bikeways grants

(Trenton) - Commissioner Kris Kolluri today announced that the New Jersey Department of Transportation (NJDOT) will award $3 million in grants for bicycle compatible transportation projects throughout the state. The funds will be allocated through NJDOT’s Fiscal Year 2008 Bikeways program.

“The Bikeways grant program can help improve quality of life by reducing congestion, improving air qualityand encouraging residents to exercise in New Jersey’s communities,” said Commissioner Kolluri.

“The program illustrates NJDOT’s commitment to partner with towns to create 1,000 miles of dedicated bikeways statewide.”

The Bikeways program awards grants to municipalities to help increase the number of bicycle trips and improve bicycle safety in the state of New Jersey. NJDOT provides funds for local projects that will result in the creation of new, independent bicycle facilities. NJDOT encourages municipalities to apply for funding for bikeways that are physically separated from vehicular traffic by an open space or barrier.

All municipalities and counties are eligible to apply for Bikeway funds. Bikeways program funding is provided by the state’s Transportation Trust Fund.
