Making Mercer More Bikeable

Mercer County and the Delaware Valley Regional Planning Commission are asking cyclists for their input on “bikeability” of roads in the county, using this map.

Bikeability is an estimate of how comfortable it is to bike along a roadway, and includes many factors, including traffic volumes, traffic speeds, pavement widths, and whether there is a usable shoulder. The West Windsor Bicycle and Pedestrian Alliance, which has assessed West Windsor roads for its own map of the Township, is participating in this project. Here’s one early reaction.

The outcome will help bicyclists plan bicycle-friendly routes to ride and help planners identify priority bicycle corridors and facilities to be considered in the future. Proposed routes and comments will be accepted until Friday, March 12.

Comments are closed.
