Work Ongoing to Complete South Brunswick Bike Trail

Path will run from Ridge Road in Kingston to Route 1, and on the western side of Route 1 the path will run by Stouts Lane, across New Road and then back to Ridge Road.

The township is working to complete a new bike pathway for cycling enthusiasts in South Brunswick.

Renovations on the South Brunswick are beginning on the northeast side of New Road. Once completed, the 10-mile bikeway will run from Ridge Road in Kingston to Route 1, and on the western side of Route 1 the path will run by Stouts Lane, across New Road and then back to Ridge Road.

"Residents will be able to ride their bikes from Monmouth Junction across Stouts Lane and up to Dow Jones," said Public Affairs Coordinator Ron Schmalz. "There will be a portion that's unpaved, but there will be a gravel path for people to ride on."

The Freedom Trail project is expected to cost about $500,000 and will be paid for by a grant from the Department of Transportation. South Brunswick was among 33 municipalities and counties statewide to share in the $7.6 million grants awarded under four state-funded local aid programs – Transit Village, Centers of Place, Bikeways and Safe Streets to Transit – run by the DOT. The grants were awarded in early 2010. 

"This will offer pedestrians a bike path that goes through natural areas that are undeveloped and will serve as a recreation tool," Schmalz said.

how about showing a real map of where this will run?and why is there a picure of Reichler Park in this article? According to your description, the path won't go by there....

How about paving bike paths in other parts of the township? I see bicyclists and runners and walkers on Culver, Friendship and many other local roads that connect us to other towns.

No Route 1 bridge? Really? Who wants to cross Route 1, on foot with kids? It's not a ten mile path if you have a hole in the middle for Route 1.
