City Receives Bike Lane Grant

Ventnor was the recipient of a bikeway grant from the New Jersey Department of Transportation (NJDOT) to create a bike lane along Atlantic Avenue connecting Longport to the new Stockton University Campus along Atlantic Avenue.

Dedicated bike lanes are proven to create safer conditions for both bikers and drivers and help make biking a more viable mode of transportation. The lane is expected to be complete by the fall.

The lanes will be built on the recommendations of the Ventnor-Margate Bicycle and Pedestrian Safety Plan completed by an engineering firm in 2016. The plan, developed to meet our community's specific challenges, such as increased summer population, aims to increase safety for all those utilizing our roadways.
