MORRIS COUNTY, NJ - The Morris County Department of Planning and Public Works will hold the first of a series of four public workshops to get public input into the development of a new countywide Transportation Master Plan on Wednesday evening, March 18, at the Lincoln Park Community Center.

Subsequent sessions through April will be held in Denville, Morris Township and Roxbury. Residents from throughout the county are invited to attend any of the sessions.

This new transportation plan, entitled “Morris County in Motion,” will assess how people and goods move by car, truck, bus, train, bicycle, and on foot, to and from and through Morris County. This project is funded by a grant from the North Jersey Transportation Planning Authority.
