County Route 541 (also known as High Street, or Burlington-Mount Holly Road) is an important North-South connection for the communities of Burlington City, Burlington Township, Westampton Township, and Mount Holly Township.
Recently, there has been an increase in commercial and residential development along the route, and several large developments are planned in the near future. This new development as well as other factors have increased traffic congestion in the area.
After gathering community input (take our survey here) Burlington County will prepare a plan to address automobile traffic and circulation, bicycle and pedestrian access and land-use and zoning issues. The plan will provide recommendations that will improve roadway conditions and enhance the long-term sustainability of the region as well as:
- Consider future development and redevelopment in the area, which will affect transportation and circulation,
- Analyze traffic impacts of doing zero road improvements compared to various recommended road improvements,
- Make recommendations to address current and anticipated transportation and circulation issues in the area, and
- Make recommendations for land use and zoning which will complement transportation and circulation improvements.
