NJDOT's List of Stimulus Projects
There are 151 projects on this list. Where are the bicycle projects? There are none. Pedestrian projects? About a half dozen. Most of the projects are legitimate rehabilitation and transit projects but some road widening projects are in there, including some mega intersection widening that makes bicycling and walking very difficult. Some projects such as the Ocean City-Somers Point Bridge do include bike and ped improvements but clearly highways are still king.
Sign the petition to show Congress your support for fixing and maintaining the network we have with the stimulus rather than throwing our money into new highway capacity and 1950’s-style highway projects.
