New Jersey Bicycle Master Plan
The New Jersey Statewide Bicycle and Pedestrian Master Plan – Phase 2 was created in 2004 as an update to the 1995 Statewide Master Plan. The plan identifies goals and objectives for development of the state's bikeway network.
DVRPC's 2011 Shifting Gears project conducted a bikeway inventory, identified bicycle trip generators and surveyed residents about bicycle facilities in Burlington County. The report also identified priority corridors for bicycle facilities in Burlington County.
Please join us to give your input on where and how to build the Burlington County bikeway network. The project team would like public feedback identifying major bicycle corridors, barriers to bicycling and gaps in the existing and proposed county bikeway network. Staff will be on-hand to talk about the planning effort, and potential solutions and tradeoffs in creating bikeways in the county.

The Burlington County Bicycle Master Plan is the first comprehensive bicycle planning effort in Burlington County. The purpose of this project is to develop a strategy for creating a countywide bikeway network. The plan's focus is to create a safe, convenient and connected bikeway network that bicyclists can use for recreation or transportation. To accomplish this, the plan intends to connect existing on- and off-road bikeways and expand the county's network of on-road bikeways to connect residents and travelers to destinations and transit connections throughout the county and region. The planning effort is being led by Cross County Connection Transportation Management Association, in partnership with Burlington County.
Phase I of this two-phase plan will develop a proposed county bikeway network. Phase II of the plan will focus on implementation strategies and will integrate Phase I findings into a comprehensive Burlington County Bicycle Master Plan. This first phase will be completed in June 2013, while Phase II is expected to be completed in 2014. The plan is funded by the Federal Highway Administration through the Delaware Valley Regional Planning Commission's Supportive Regional Highway Planning Program. Informing the first phase is an inventory of existing and proposed bikeways in Burlington County currently being conducted by Cross County Connection, funded by a Federal Highway Administration grant through the North Jersey Transportation Planning Authority.
