New Horizons in Mobility: Middlesex County Transportation Plan Element of the County Comprehensive Master Plan (2013) Transportation Master Plan Appendices
Middlesex County’s “New Horizons in Mobility” Transportation Plan provides a vision of enhanced mobility for all users. Adopted by the Middlesex County Planning Board on September 10, 2013, the Plan helps to guide transportation planning in the County and supports a balanced and intermodal transportation system within the framework of defined goals. The intent is to improve transportation choices, safety, provide a system of good repair, access to jobs, environmental improvements, economic competitiveness, and a system that accommodates all users and modes of travel.
The development of this Plan along with prior area or corridor specific studies were done under the North Jersey Transportation Planning Authority (NJTPA) federally funded Subregional Studies Program.

This is a supplement to the County’s Transportation Plan providing project descriptions and related graphical illustrations by municipality and sub-county areas for proposed projects included in the Transportation Plan along with projects completed since the adoption of the previous Transportation Plan.
This Study examined potential improvements to transit network operations along the Route 9 Corridor in Middlesex County by connecting local transit services to regional transit services, along the State’s second busiest bus corridor. The corridor has peak period service of one bus every two minutes. Reducing the level of auto commuting and congestion, and increasing the level of accessibility to regional transit and to jobs were among the study’s chief goals. The findings were addressed in a set of recommendations designed to capture underserved areas with new or improved local shuttle route designs. The implementation of the Middlesex County Area Transit (MCAT) M-7 bus route was among the recommendations from this study.
This study responded to prior requests for the expansion of transit services in unserved or underserved areas of southern Middlesex County based on new growth that has occurred in that area of the County over the last decade. Some of the transit initiatives in southern Middlesex County that were implemented within the period of 2009 and 2012, such as the implementation of the Middlesex County Area Transit (MCAT) M-6 bus service extending to much of the southern County area, were in accordance with the recommendations of this Study.
This Study was done as a sequel of the prior 2005 Study to extend the pedestrian crossing analysis further south through Old Bridge Township, and to examine the feasibility of establishing a park and ride facility in the vicinity of the Route 18 and Route 9 interchange along with peak period express bus service to New Brunswick. The study examines alternative travel routes between the proposed park and ride in Old Bridge and downtown New Brunswick for new service that could draw transit trips originating at the park and ride facility and from points south along Route 9. This service could provide also access to Northeast rail Corridor points and hence serve on a limited basis as a bus potential alternative to the rail version of the proposed Monmouth – Ocean- Middlesex (MOM) transit project.
This study looked at the need to improve crosswalk accommodations for pedestrians at over a dozen busy intersections along the Route 18 Corridor in East Brunswick and to enable safer access to nearby residential, shopping, transit and employment facilities and services. The findings and recommendations of this study provided the basis for pedestrian safety improvements at the intersection of Route 18 and Edgeboro Road – CR 527 that were implemented by NJDOT in early 2013. The appendices include a compendium of information including existing traffic conditions at the time of the study and proposed recommendations derived from the Study.
This Plan provides a County subregional focus on bicycle and pedestrian initiatives, projects, and programs, many of which were re-addressed in the 2013 Transportation Plan Update, New Horizons in Mobility. The Plan also includes design guidelines that can assist in the initiation of projects.
Preserving Rail Rights of Way in Middlesex County (1997) Final Report
This study provides an inventory of railroad facilities throughout Middlesex County including coverage and aerial photos taken during the study of various freight and short line facilities existing in the County. It also identifies rail lines or rail line segments which were abandoned and their alternatives uses for such possible facilities including access roads, trails, or public / private facilities.
