Abstract: This report summarizes a multi-year planning effort involving 20 municipalities surrounding US 1 in Central Jersey. The purpose of the Forum is to foster better coordination among the municipalities, counties, state agencies, and regional agencies. Five key issues were identified: east-west access, system-wide planning and coordination, transit and alternative modes, impacts of land use planning on transportation, and goods movement/trucks. The Forum examined a number of alternate future visions involving different combinations of highway, transit, and land use assumptions. Findings of this analysis is documented, as well as recommendations to address the five key issues.
