The Somerset County Bicycle and Pedestrian Facilities and Trails Plan
Somerset County, with a growing diverse population and changing employment opportunities, has a great need for better connected destinations and additional mobility choices by improving the existing bicycle, pedestrian and trails infrastructure to better connect priority destinations. Many of these destinations connect the public with essential services including: public facilities, medical facilities, recreation and educational facilities, employment nodes, transit hubs and cultural and historic facilities. The study will propose improvements to the existing regional pedestrian and bike facilities and trails network which will support the increased usage of these non-motorized facilities for various trip purposes. The study will also increase mobility options for county residents, workers and visitors without a car, not located near public transit and promote health and wellness opportunities for all persons.
