The City of Trenton will host a public meeting later this month to present the final design of the D&R Greenway Connector project. This 1.2-mile-long project will consist of a series of bicycle lane enhancements in downtown Trenton, the addition of a sidepath from the Lower Trenton Bridge, and the city’s first bicycle protected intersection.
The D&R Greenway Connector is the next segment of a multi-phase project to create a safe and continuous bicycle and pedestrian route between the D&R Canal Path in downtown Trenton to the canal spur in Hamilton Township and Bordentown.
The City of Trenton has dedicated $911,000 from the New Jersey Department of Transportation Surface Transportation Block Grant Program for the construction of the project. Construction is slated to begin in early 2023. This project will also connect to the Cooper Field Connector, which along with the Marine Terminal Trail, will help close the gap for a continuous bicycling and pedestrian path between downtown Trenton, the Delaware River waterfront, and Bordentown.
Residents may visit the project webpage HERE to register for a live, virtual public meeting to be held on Wednesday, September 28th, from 6 p.m. to 7 p.m.
For those unable to attend the live, virtual meeting, the presentation will be recorded and posted on the City’s webpage the day following the presentation.
