Save the Date! The 2017 Bike JC Jersey City Ward Tour will take place on June 4th. More details to come in the next few weeks.
We are moving forward on our most important current initiative -- pushing for the redesign of dangerous streets.
We presented our redesign plans for the Grand Street corridor (Grand Street Vision
) at the the Jersey City Council meeting on December 14th, where there was a strong show of support from the Jersey City bicycling community.
The Council passed a unanimous vote (9-0) for resolution 16.851 which requests the City of Jersey City Division of Engineering to study and prepare plans for a safety and accessibility redesign of Grand Street, to include advanced design techniques such as a "road diet", pedestrian safety features, and protected bike lanes, as appropriate. Council offered and moved adoption of the resolution. View an image of the resolution here.
