The Morris County Bicycle &
In 1998, Morris County launched the Bicycle and
Pedestrian Element of the Morris County Master Plan to
improve conditions for bicyclists and pedestrians. The
plan, advanced by the Bicycle and Pedestrian Public
Advisory Committee (BiPED PAC) and other community
representatives, has the following objectives:
||To develop an integrated system/network
of bicycle and pedestrian facilities for both
recreation and commuting purposes.
||To increase the safety of bicycling
||To encourage bicycling and walking
through community planning and encourage local
||To promote bicycling and walking
as alternatives to driving.
This plan identifies Morris County’s bicycle and pedestrian
facilities by region and lists the resources available to people who bicycle
and walk for recreation or commuting purposes. Safety and education issues
were revealed to be very important for everyone. Recommendations and resources
are provided for bicycle and pedestrian safety education and for communities
planning new and proposed facilities, including bike lanes, sidewalks,
trail extensions, and multi-use trails.
