A new bike path in Wayne is one of many transportation upgrades that county officials say residents should expect as part of the implementation of its Master Plan, NorthJersey.com reported.
According to the report, the on-road bicycle lanes installed along Ratzer Road between Valley and Alps Roads in Wayne are the first of their kind in the county to be installed under the new “Complete Streets Policy,” which was recently passed by the Passaic County Freeholders.
The path is about two feet from the curb, the report said.
"It's a good concept and we extenuate the importance of exercise but at the same time bikers must always proceed with caution and be extremely careful," Mayor Chris Vergano told NorthJersey.com.
In addition to promoting bike safety improvements, the “Complete Streets Policy” plans out how to develop the Passaic County Master Plan’s transportation element, the report said. It is meant to improve street safety and access to transportation areas, it said.
The Master Planned was passed in 2012.
