Current Transportation Projects in Warren County: Transportation projects funded in Warren County are listed in the NJTPA Transportation Improvement Program or TIP (links below). The TIP is a four-year agenda of improvement projects drawn from the NJTPA long-range Regional Transportation Plan. Projects in the TIP--including public transit, road, bridge, bicycle, pedestrian and freight-related projects--have completed planning and are ready for final design, land acquisition, and construction. The following are links to TIP projects:
- TIP Webpage – This link takes you to a table on the TIP webpage containing PDF files of project lists.
You may have to scroll to the link to Warren County’s project list. Select the date in Column 1 for the current TIP. Note: the files on this page change throughout the year. They include the adopted TIP (approved annually each July), revisions made to the adopted TIP and (when available) the draft TIP pending approval for the upcoming year. The TIP introduction provides a more detailed explanation.
- NOTIS – The NJTPA Online Transportation Information System - allows interactive searching for projects in particular locations or on particular routes, using maps and database queries. NOTIS includes projects in the currently adopted TIP as well as projects still at the planning stage (see “Projects Planned” below).
Projects Planned for Warren County : The NJTPA Project Development Work Program (PDWP) evaluates the need for projects and develops alternative conceptual designs and routes. The PDWP contains a variety of work, from technical studies focusing on highly specific, localized issues to major corridor studies that cover large stretches of our regional transportation system. Projects are scored and ranked during development of the PDWP. When projects have passed through the PDWP, they are generally eligible for funding through the TIP. The following link should take you to Warren County’s section in a PDF file. On some browsers, you may have to manually scroll to the county’s section on Page 23.
High Risk Rural Roads Program: NJTPA's High Risk Rural Roads Program provides funds for quick-fix, safety improvements on rural roads that have been identified by NJDOT as having crash rates that exceed the NJTPA region's average for those functional classes of roadways.

Regionwide Studies: The NJTPA sponsors studies of regionwide transportation issues, some of which may impact Warren County. These studies can be found in Vol. I of the FY 2013 UPWP, Pages 63-71. On some browsers you may have to scroll to the appropriate page:
The NJTPA regional databank is a digital repository for all transportation and related data, stored and maintained on the NJTPA’s computer network. The regional databank assists staff, agency partners and subregions in planning initiatives by providing accurate, accessible transportation and related datasets necessary for informed analysis, decision-making and reporting.
Datasets are made available to partner agencies, subregions and the general public via posting on the Internet. This section contains subregion-specific data that is maintained in a geographic information system (GIS). Included are ArcGIS shapefile layers for land use/land cover (LULC), parks (two different shapefiles), water bodies (lakes and streams) and Highlands land use capability map zones. Additional data needs can be met by going to Data & Maps section of the NJTPA website or fulfillment of individual data requests.
- Land Use
- Water bodies
- Freight Industry Profile
The NJTPA has developed a set of alternative
freight forecasts to support transportation, land
use, and economic development decisions. The
first step in the study process was to document
current baseline conditions. This Freight Profile
offers a snapshot of key metrics – Economy and
Land Uses, Freight Flows, and Freight
Transportation Networks in 2010 and in the
forecast year, 2040
