The Project Team held a Public Information Center on Wednesday, May 24, 2017 (6:00 PM – 8:00 PM) at Virtua (Kelly Conference Room), located at 1000 Atlantic Avenue, Camden, NJ 08104. The information session provided an opportunity for the public to learn more about the project, and provide their local input and knowledge on what problems exist today that could help in developing solutions to improve corridor safety. For those that were unable to attend, the following materials from the May 24th Public Information Center are available for download:



The goal of the study is to recommend preferred alternatives that will significantly improve the safety for all modes of travel within the project’s study area, with special attention given to vulnerable users: pedestrians and bicyclists. Funding for this project was made available through Delaware Valley Regional Planning Commission’s (DVRPC) FY 2016 Local Capital Project Delivery (LCPD) Program for Camden County. This study will comply with the Federal Highway Administration’s Highway Safety Improvement Program (HSIP), from which one of the project deliverables will include a Highway Safety Manual (HSM) analysis completed to the specifications of NJDOT’s Bureau of Transportation Data and Safety.
