Somerset County, with funding from the North Jersey Transportation Authority (NJTPA) sub-regional studies program, has launched the Somerset County Roadway Safety Study. This study will advance Somerset County’s efforts to address pedestrian, bicycle, and road safety. Up to five County maintained roadways will undergo a comprehensive safety analysis by a multidisciplinary team to identify vehicle, pedestrian, and bicyclist safety issues and develop safety improvement recommendations.
