Camden County is one of nine counties home to the Circuit Trails in the Great Philadelphia and South Jersey region—and it is crucial to reaching the interim goal of building 500 miles of trails in the network by 2025. A key project to achieving this goal is the Burlington-Camden Trail, which will be a 10-mile trail connecting downtown Camden to Burlington County, by way of Pennsauken Township along Chestnut Avenue. Existing segments of the trail include the Merchantville Trail and the Dudley Grange Park Trail in Camden; and, already, $1 million has been committed to the two remaining unbuilt segments of trail. The Camden County action team will be focused rallying the support of local residents in Pennsauken to encourage the local government to keep up the momentum on the eastern segment of the trail, which will provide a safe crossing over Route 130, a road with one of the highest pedestrian death rates in New Jersey.
We have an opportunity to prioritize Camden County trail projects and secure federal funding to move them forward. We need your help to make sure Congress knows how important the Circuit Trails are to you and the people who live in our county.
