Submissions for Transportation Alternatives Program (TAP) and Safe Routes to School Funding Being Accepted Through August 23rd.

Does your community have important bicycle and pedestrian project needs? The Safe Routes to Schools program and Transportation Alternatives Program (TAP) may be able to provide funding. Applications for the 2018 Program are now being accepted through August 23, 2018. Similar to the 2016 Program, applications must be submitted via Sage. County and municipal governments among others are eligible to apply.

To avoid common mistakes, review “How to Maximize Your Chances of Success” as well as other useful resources on our TAP and Safe Routes pages.

Attend a Free Workshop for Applicants of Transportation Alternatives Program (TAP) and Safe Routes to School Funding

If you are considering submitting an application for the 2018 Transportation Alternatives Program (TAP) or Safe Routes to School program you should attend one of the free workshops being held by the Safe Routes to School Resource Center. These workshops will provide very useful information on how to submit a successful application and how to avoid common mistakes that can disqualify an application.

You can join SJTPO and others at a workshop at Cumberland County College on Wednesday, May 23rd from 10 am to Noon. To register to attend, click here.

More information about the workshops, including additional locations outside of the region, as well as the two programs are available on our TAP page and Safe Routes pages.

Cape May County Ocean Drive (CR 621) LCD Study Information

In support of Cape May County, the SJTPO initiated efforts with the New Jersey Department of Transportation (NJDOT) to secure funding for a Local Concept Development (LCD) study for Ocean Drive (County Road 621) Upgrades and Bridge Developments. Funding efforts were successful, and approved at the SJTPO Policy Board in September 2017, with Michael Baker International, Inc. chosen as the consultant.

The LCD study is the first phase of the project, and will help to identify and assess strategies that will direct bridge improvements and maintenance. For more information about the project, and for upcoming meeting dates, please visit the project website at capemaytwomilebridge.com.

Regions Served by SJTPO

The South Jersey Transportation Planning Organization engages in various local and regional planning projects throughout the counties of Atlantic, Cumberland, Cape May, and Salem.

Current Air Quality Conditions

Current Air Quality Conditions are posted several times throughout the day and include information on Ozone and PM2.5. PM2.5 refers to fine particulate matter, which is a by-product of fossil fuel combustion. PM2.5 can easily reach remote lung areas, and is linked to serious respiratory ailments such as asthma and may aggravate other medical conditions. Ground-level ozone is not emitted directly into the air, but is created by chemical reactions in the presence of sunlight. Because of this, high ozone levels occur most frequently on hot summer afternoons. SJTPO engages in a number of efforts to measure and improve air quality in our region.
