The Township of Hanover is proud to release the Inclusive Healthy Communities Mobility Plan, a long-range vision for the future of mobility in Hanover. The plan offers guidance to maximize the efficiency of the Township's existing transportation network and infrastructure by developing strategies for long-term transportation upgrades that are inclusive of people with disabilities and will advance sustainable practices, systems, and environmental changes. This result is the culmination of 15 months of collecting public opinions, analyzing township infrastructure, and researching mobility options available to Hanover residents.

The Mobility Plan serves as a guide for infrastructure investment to improve mobility and economic growth with a focus on pedestrian safety and improved public transportation options. Immediate improvements residents will be able to see this year are re-painted, high-visibility pedestrian crosswalks and sidewalks throughout the municipality. Additionally, four push-button flashing pedestrian beacons will be placed at two intersections on Ridgedale Avenue which were key locations explicitly mentioned by participants in the outreach conducted for the development of this plan.
The ambitious plan also includes recommendations for improving access to transportation services and working with other organizations to do so. These recommendations will be explored in the future through potential partnerships with Morris County and NJTIP @ Rutgers. A Local Public Transportation Guide was released earlier this year in conjunction with this project. The guide can be viewed online as a PDF or residents can request a copy be mailed to them through this online form.
This project was funded by an Inclusive Healthy Communities Grant from the Division of Disability Services, New Jersey Department of Human Services.
