New Jersey Circuit Trails Need Dedicated Funding
Please send in a comment today to the Board of the Delaware Valley Regional Planning Commission asking them to do two things:
1) Create a "line item" for Circuit Trails that would allow Burlington County to draw down funds as trails advance through the planning design and construction process. A Circuit line item in the NJTIP is critical because it ensures construction funding is available from a dedicated, accountable source.
2) Dedicate $4 Million for Circuit Trails in the "line item" towards the construction of ten segments that have a funding gap of nearly $17 Million.
You can also attend a public meeting about the NJ Transportation Improvement Program (NJTIP) on September 6th in Collingswood. More info here.
