Community Partnering Team

The New Jersey Department of Transportation (NJDOT) established the Community Partnering Team (CPT) in 2001 to inform community stakeholders and the public of the progress and development of the project.

The CPT discussed the issues and concerns of its communities, organizations and regional agencies. It provided the Steering Committee feedback about options for the Route 36 Highlands Bridge replacement.

The CPT's goals are:

  • Identification of the interests and concerns of local residents, organizations, municipal agencies and businesses;
  • developing improvements to the Highlands Bridge that maximize safety and traffic efficiency while minimizing detrimental environmental, historic and community impacts;
  • providing input and recommendations in a collaborative fashion through consensus;
  • communication with constituents and regional stakeholders;
  • and maximization of broad-based public participation in the transportation development process.
