Residents, employees, business owners and visitors who travel the Main Street/Easton Avenue corridor between the Bound Brook and New Brunswick train stations are invited to share their ideas in an online survey for the Main Street/Easton Avenue Corridor Study being conducted by Somerset and Middlesex counties.

The survey focuses on travel patterns along the corridor and seeks to identify mobility issues and strategies to improve driving, public transit, walking and biking conditions in the area.

Go to "Easton Avenue Survey" on the RideWise homepage at www.ridewise.org to take a short survey.  Responses are requested by mid-December.

Middlesex and Somerset counties received a planning grant from the North Jersey Transportation Planning Authority (NJTPA) to prepare a Main Street/Easton Avenue Corridor Plan. 

The plan will address potential roadway improvements; transit-service enhancements; smart-growth land-use and circulation possibilities; bicycle and pedestrian usage; and intelligent-transportation systems. It will include proposed short-, medium- and long-term improvements for Bound Brook, South Bound Brook, Franklin Township and for the City of New Brunswick.

For more information about the survey or the study, contact Somerset County Principal Planner Kenneth Wedeen at (908) 231-7021 or wedeen@co.somerset.nj.us.
