NJ: Projects for Pedestrians & Bicyclists

February 9, 2009

Is non-motor friendly the first phrase you think of when you think of New Jersey? How about bicycle and pedestrian projects? After you look at today’s State Agency Database Highlight, you may think again:

  • New Jersey Bicycle/Pedestrian Project Database – Activated in 2005 to provide information to assist in planning, designing, building and maintaining facilities for bicyclists and pedestrians, the database contains information submitted by individuals and agencies on project type, location, cost and funding. The database is not all-inclusive.

The NJ Bicycle/Pedestrian Project Database was added to the New Jersey page of State Agency Databases Across the Fifty States by Stephanie Bartz. The page as a whole does not yet have a volunteer to keep it up to date. Will you take up the challenge? If so, please e-mail Daniel Cornwall at dnlcornwall *AT* alaska *Dot* net.

SDOTD: 8/26/2007 – IA: Bridge Conditions

August 27, 2007

Today’s State Database of the Day comes to us from Iowa:

Bridges in Iowa – Requires Google Earth. From the website, “To provide increased access to bridge information, the Iowa DOT has developed a Web program that allows Iowans to pinpoint a state highway bridge in their area using Google Earth software and Iowa DOT data. Information available online now includes the year a bridge was originally constructed and reconstructed, if it has undergone major work, the average daily traffic count, the highway it carries and feature crossed, and its national bridge sufficiency rating.”
