The Transportation Planning Section studies the interaction of transportation and land use issues affecting Monmouth County. The section compiles data, conducts studies to analyze the use and performance of highway and transit systems, facilitates public outreach and coordination on selected transportation issues, and maintains a close working relationship with local, state, and regional transportation planners and agencies.
The Transportation Section is responsible for managing and conducting a federally sponsored regional transportation planning grant program for Monmouth County each year. This grant ensures that a continuing, comprehensive and coordinated transportation planning program is available for Monmouth County to support regional planning and capital project funding decisions made for all of Northern New Jersey.
Specific work includes:
- Developing plans or strategies to reduce traffic congestion on county and regional roadway corridors, design and support for implementation of improved public transportation services, and consideration of the balance between vehicle, transit, bicycle, pedestrian transportation needs with community quality of life issues.
- Developing partnerships with local, county and state agencies on a variety of projects ranging from smart-growth planning initiatives to traffic reduction and engineering project design task forces, and provides technical guidance and support to local officials.
- Conducting a major research study each year on a critical transportation issue or need, often with local origins and regional implications.
- Providing technical support to the Monmouth County Transportation Council (MCTC), a 15-member citizens advisory committee to the Monmouth County Planning Board on transportation issues.
