What Will $6 Million Buy For Camden

Yesterday Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood announced the recipients of TIGER grants and for perhaps the first time in the transportation world ever freight rail, transit and bicycle pedestrian projects far outpaced awards for highway projects which received only about 10% of the available funds.

Camden and Philadelphia were recipients of a 23 million dollar package of trail and bike lane projects known as GREAT PA/NJ of that more than 6 million will go to 3 projects in Camden. They are:
  • Bike Lanes on Pearl St From the Bridge to the waterfront promenade
  • Bike Lanes for Martin Luther King Boulevard from Cooper Hospital to the Adventure Aquarium
  • A Bicycle Boulevard on Pine Street from Cooper River Park to the Adventure Aquarium and waterfront promenade
