Secaucus bike lane in the works on Meadowlands Parkway

SECAUCUS - Secaucus is getting its very first bike lane, and there may be more on the way. The first lane is currently under construction on the west side of Meadowlands Parkway and will run from the former Hess property near Route 3 to the Harmon Cove condominium complex about a mile down the road.

Secaucus continues the green eco-friendly drive. Mayor Mike Gonnelli "Secaucus is a very bike-friendly town - it's a good town to bike in," he added. "It really is not like Hoboken or any other (Hudson County town) like that. There's always room to bike."

"While the existing paths currently allow for bicycles, this phase will be the first bike path solely dedicated to bicycles, said Scott Goodman, field manager with AJM construction. Phase One consists of a bike path on Meadowlands Parkway southbound from the Route 3 exit to the parking garage and enhancement of the gravel path behind the Meadowlands Hospital. One traffic signal will be updated to include a signal for bicycles, added Goodman.

Phase Two of the project, which is awaiting funding and redevelopment of a property near the Route 3 Bridge, will extend the bike path and create one continuous path from Mill Creek Park to behind Harmon Cove, said Goodman."
