Project Goals

The Township aims to refine its vision for bicycle and pedestrian travel throughout Toms River and prioritize safety enhancements needed to achieve the vision. The plan will:

  • Develop and build consensus for a Community Vision for bicycling and walking in Toms River
  • Evaluate the Township’s bicycle and pedestrian network identifying needs and opportunities focusing on access to key destinations, the town center and the developing River Walk Trail
  • Identify a Priority Bicycle and Pedestrian Network, including both on- and off-road opportunities
  • Develop typical improvement Concepts, focused on major linkages to the town center and developing River Walk Trail

The plan will comprehensively identify opportunities to create, enhance, and expand walking and bicycling facilities throughout the township. The goal is to advance Toms River’s vision for safe bicycle and pedestrian travel throughout the Township. The Township’s residents, businesses, elected officials and stakeholders will participate and provide their input throughout the project through the involvement of a project Steering Committee and outreach efforts including a project website, community survey, public visioning workshops and a public open house.

The plan will identify a priority bicycle and pedestrian network that links key destinations such as schools, parks, downtown Toms River, Winding River Trail, and the developing River Walk trail. As part of the comprehensive approach, the plan will outline recommendations for the township to implement and help prioritize future transportation investment.

The Township of Toms River’s Bicycle and Pedestrian Plan will be developed during the fall and spring and expected to be completed by July 2019.
