Brigantine awarded grant for bicycle and pedestrian plan

Attention: open in a new window. PrintE-mail

Brigantine Beach is preparing a bicycle and pedestrian plan with assistance from Michael Baker Jr., Inc. The plan is funded by the New Jersey Department of Transportation, Office of Bicycle and Pedestrian Programs.

The plan will identify Brigantine bike and pedestrian issues and recommend ways to promote bicycle and pedestrian safety, accessibility, and mobility. For example, the study will consider where future bike lanes and paths should be located.

The final product of this study will be a bicycle and pedestrian master plan to serve as a guide to develop city projects and as a resource to assist in getting grants to implement bicycle and pedestrian improvements.

Input from island residents and workers is encouraged.

To generate input, the city has posted the bicycle and pedestrian plan survey online at www.surveymonkey.com/s/brigantinebeach. Residents and workers are encouraged to take the survey.

City officials remind residents to check the city’s website at www.brigantinebeachnj.com for upcoming events and study updates.

There will be a public meeting to discuss the plan after it is completed.
