CRANFORD, NJ - Work on the new Union County Transportation Master Plan is drawing to a close, and the public is invited to get a preview of the final product at an Open House event on Monday, April 25, 5:00 – 7:00 p.m. at the Cranford Community Center, 220 Walnut Avenue in Cranford.

“The Union County Transportation Master Plan is a critical planning tool that will help the Freeholder Board and other representatives advocate for improvements in mass transit, bicycle routes, walkable neighborhoods and every other aspect of the ways in which people and goods move in Union County,” said Freeholder Chairman Bruce H. Bergen. “The Open House will provide you with an opportunity to view the components of the plan before the final document is issued.”

At the Open House, members of the public can view maps, photographs and other documents. Transportation experts will be on hand to answer questions and provide brief presentations, and a Spanish translator will be present throughout the event.

The Open House is a free, drop-in event. No pre-registration is required.

“Transportation affects every aspect of our lives and our economy,” said Freeholder Angel G. Estrada, who was recently named First Vice Chair of the North Jersey Transportation Planning Authority. “I encourage every stakeholder to take this opportunity to talk to the experts and inform yourself about the challenges and opportunities ahead.”

Residents can also participate in an online transportation survey available on the County website at ucnj.org/tmp, where they can register their views on the transportation infrastructure in their communities, and list the areas they would like to see targeted for improvement.

The survey is open until April 30.

Work on the Union County Transportation Master Plan is being conducted by the Union County Bureau of Transportation Planning, Department of Economic Development. Completion is expected in June 2016.

The Union County Transportation Master Plan is funded by the North Jersey Transportation Planning Authority and Union County.
