SJTPO Cumberland County Bicycle and Pedestrian Safety Action Plan

The South Jersey Transportation Planning Organization (SJTPO), in partnership with Cumberland County, and the Cities of Vineland, Millville and Bridgeton, developed a Bicycle and Pedestrian Safety Action Plan for Cumberland County. Bicycle and pedestrian safety is a pressing issue. The county has high bicycle and pedestrian volumes, and an unacceptably high number of crashes – 65% of bicycle and pedestrian crashes were injury crashes, and 5% were fatal. The goal of the Cumberland County Bicycle and Pedestrian Safety Action Plan is to advance multiple bicycle and pedestrian safety projects on county and local roadways, within Vineland, Millville, and Bridgeton. The Cumberland County Bicycle and Pedestrian Safety Action Plan:

  • Prioritizes locations with the greatest bicycle and pedestrian safety needs
  • Develops crash and speed reduction strategies
  • Prepares bicycle and pedestrian projects for New Jersey’s Local Safety Program

By employing a strategic, data-driven, and community-driven approach to project identification and advancement, the Cumberland County Bicycle and Pedestrian Safety Action Plan serves as a model for improving bicycle and pedestrian safety in the South Jersey region.

Why Vineland, Millville, and Bridgeton?

Vineland, Millville, and Bridgeton contain over two-thirds of the county’s 157,000 residents, with the remainder of the county dominated by less populated farmland or woodlands. The rural nature of the county, combined with an abundance of natural resources and preserved land, tends to concentrate walking and biking trips within the three cities – 91% of bicycle and pedestrian crashes are concentrated in the county’s three urban centers.
