  Voorhees Township needs your input to create a walkable and bikeable linkage between Voorhees Town Center and the future site of Environmental Park! Special attention will be paid to Echelon Road, Laurel Oak Road and Centennial Boulevard. Your answers to the following questions will help the township build facilities that best suit the needs and preferences of its residents.

This project is the collaborative effort between Voorhees Township, Voorhees Environmental and Cultural Education Foundation (VECEF), Rutgers Center for Urban Environmental Sustainability and Cross County Connection Transportation Management Association and is funded through a Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) grant through the Delaware Valley Regional Planning Commission (DVRPC). For more information on this project and to stay informed, please visit bikeplan.org.

We appreciate your input!
