Please Contact the US DOT to Support the Lejeune Greenway

Bicycle and pedestrian friends,

I need your help once again!

Construction of the Lejeune Greenway is being blocked by the Federal Highway Administration.

If you support the Lejeune Greenway (and I hope that you do, because you should!) please contact the FHWA Bicycle and Pedestrian program manager via email to gabe.rousseau@dot.gov and let him know.

Also, please use the DOT.gov contact form at https://ntl.custhelp.com/app/ask to send the same message of support.

And if you really really want to over-achieve, call the DOT switchboard at (202) 366-4000 and leave a message.

Thanks!

Running and Bicycling Folks in Jacksonville, NC : Our Community Needs Your Help!

There have been some challenges to the Lejeune a Greenway planned to connect downtown Jacksonville with the Rails-to-Trail greenway by the new Wilson Gate entrance to Camp Lejeune.

The route, as planned, will go through the Lejeune Memorial Gardens before curving toward Highway 17 and then onward to the Rails-to-Trail greenway.

This planned route is the safest and most efficient route possible and has been agreed to by all official representatives of the memorials, Lejeune Memorial Gardens, Camp Lejeune, as well as city and state transportation planners and regulators. The Beirut Veterans of America have agreed to the planned route and oppose any deviation of the route.

I’d appreciate it if you could come to the Jacksonville City Council meeting on Tuesday at 7pm to speak in support of this important bicycle and pedestrian connection.

I have supplementary information that I can provide on request.

Please let me know if you’re going to come!

Thanks!
