Abstract: The Planned Projects Status Report has provided information on transportation projects in Central Jersey for over 11 years. The report covers projects listed in Transportation Improvement Programs (TIPs) for the Delaware Valley Regional Planning Commission and the North Jersey Transportation Planning Authority. It also covers other regionally important transportation projects regardless of funding. Major land development projects in Central Jersey are included to help with coordination of transportation and land use planning. Full information and maps are provided for 22 projects in the New Jersey Department of Transportation Capital Program. The first section of the report analyzes what the full set of projects means in terms of the Forum’s goals. Roadway improvement, bridge, and transit projects are the most common types among Central Jersey’s TIP projects, with six in each category. Projects that improve safety and/or operations, or that rehabilitate roadways, are the next most common, with three each. Altogether, the 22 projects in this report represent approval to invest approximately $356 million over the TIP years. The land development projects listed as completed or currently under construction in this report will add over 435,000 square feet of commercial space; over 4.1 million square feet of warehouse space; and nearly 5,200 housing units. The impacts of these projects will be significant and deserve attention by local and county officials and pertinent transportation agencies and organizations.
