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.

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.
