Moving Mindfully: Monmouth/Mercer Freight Study

    As Monmouth County enters an era of redevelopment, revitalization, and rediscovery with the recent adoption of the Monmouth County Master Plan, it is crucial now to address critical capacity issues for freight routes to ensure freight related transportation is safely and efficiently interacting with local automobile traffic. These may be along state, county and local rail, and roadways. This study will focus on truck routes and trucking needs, although rail routes, and their role in the multi-modal freight network of this area will be considered as part of a long term strategy for accommodating and managing freight traffic in the area.
