Poll: NJ Supports Smart Growth, Transit, Road Repair

Poll: NJ Supports Smart Growth, Transit, Road Repair
by Steven Higashide


New Jerseyans support smart growth, a statewide planning strategy, expanding transit, and maintaining existing roads, according to a new poll released today by the Monmouth University Polling Institute. The poll was commissioned by Tri-State Transportation Campaign, New Jersey Future, the Pinelands Preservation Alliance, and Smart Growth America.

This new data further supports our stand that investing in public transportation and road and bridge repairs will prevent suburban sprawl and enhance our sustainability, TSTC Executive Director Kate Slevin said in a release. It also has an added benefit of offering some economic relief throughout the state.

Transportation

Residents believe road and bridge repair and expansion of public transportation are high priorities. Seventy-five percent rate the maintenance and repair of existing roads and highways as a high priority, and 54 percent give the same rating to expanding and improving train and bus services. Only 36 percent see building new roads as a high priority.

52 percent of residents agree with the statement that now is the time for state government to invest in transportation to create jobs and attract new business. .............(more)
