BIKEWAYS FOR STATE HIGHWAYS--A STUDY OF DUAL USE

This study is an analysis of conditions presently existing on New Jersey state roadways in relation to their joint use by bicyclists and motorists. Use of most New Jersey state highways as Class III bikeways is not feasible. The Department of Transportation can designate certain roads as bike routes; however, it cannot control high traffic volumes that create safety problems. Procedures used in developing New Jersey's bikeway network will be similar to those used in developing highways; however, a different set of warrents for bicycle traffic must be established. Jurisdiction for developing privately owned areas such as abandoned rights-of-way and utility easements must by studied. Any concept of a statewide network, or even a city or county network of bikeways is a planning and funding question of major proportions.
