Bikeways

The New Jersey Department of Transportation’s (NJDOT) Bikeway Grant Program provides funds to counties and municipalities to promote bicycling as an alternate mode of transportation in New Jersey. A primary objective of the Bikeway Grant Program is to support the State’s goal of constructing 1,000 new miles of dedicated bike paths (facilities that are physically separated from motorized vehicular traffic by an open space or barrier either within the highway right of way or within an independent right of way). In an effort to establish regionally connected bicycle networks, this program is available to every municipality and county throughout New Jersey. Although priority will be given to construction of new bike paths, the proposed construction or delineation of any new bicycle facility will be considered.
