The Morris County Division of Transportation and its consultant, VHB, are conducting an online travel survey as part of the NJ 124 Corridor Transit Access Improvement Study.

The study will analyze and recommend train station access improvements for all users at the stations in Chatham, Madison, and Convent Station. The project team invites the public who travel to or from southeast Morris County to complete the travel survey on the project web site.

“Whether a person travels by train or not, his or her responses will provide valuable input into the study,” said Gerald Rohsler, division director.

The survey asks various questions regarding travel patterns and solicits suggestions on improving train station access. The survey responses will be incorporated into the various tasks of the study, according to Rohsler.

“Once it’s completed, the study will produce a final report that will include an assessment of existing transportation infrastructure, modes of access and land use, and will provide recommendations and strategies to meet the access needs of the public in the near and long term,” Rohsler said.

The study is funded through the North Jersey Transportation Planning Authority’s Sub-regional Studies Program and is being managed by the county’s Division of Transportation.

The project began in January and is anticipated to be completed in March 2013.

The Travel Survey and more information about the study are available on the Morris County Division of Transportation Web site, https://morriscountynj.gov/transportation/projects/nj124/.
