Ocean County Bicycle and Pedestrian Linkages from the Barnegat Branch Trail, Northern Section
The Barnegat Branch Trail parallels the high traffic Route 9 and Route 166 state highways which do not provide for adequate bicycle and pedestrian facilities. The connections that can be made by this trail allow for alternative modes of transportation, which is available to a broader range of users, while increasing safety to these users. This study will evaluate the impacts and study appropriate access to areas of interest. It will determine the linkages that may need to be developed between local residential areas, schools, public/community buildings, parks, recreation, public spaces, employment, and to transportation, such as the NJ TRANSIT Park & Ride bus terminal and bus stops.
