Camden County Receives $3 Million for Bicycle, Pedestrian, Streetscape and Transportation Projects
(Camden, NJ) – The Board of the Delaware Valley Regional Planning Commission (DVRPC) recently awarded Camden County more than $3 million for a series of projects that will improve and expand sustainable means of transportation.
“Here in Camden County we are always searching for ways to improve operational sustainability, shrink our carbon footprint and boost the quality of life for our residents. And receiving these funds to enhance travel options countywide will help propel this mission forward in a big way,” said Commissioner Director Louis Cappelli Jr. “Funds will be distributed to several major projects in Camden County that tackle everything from intersection improvements to installing missing sidewalks and more. Once these projects are completed, our residents will have a wider variety of choices when it comes to multi-modal means of travel such as biking, walking and public transit. We are thrilled that the DVRPC sees the value in creating safer and more environmentally friendly travel options.”
Six of the projects are being funded through the Safe Routes to School (SRTS) Program, which supports projects that make biking and walking to school safer and more appealing to students.
