LAWRENCE HOPEWELL TRAIL HONORS SHEREE DAVIS, MANAGER, BUREAU OF COMMUTER AND MOBILITY STRATEGIES FOR NJ DOT, WITH 1ST ANNUAL TRAILBLAZER AWARD

 

(HOPEWELL, NJ)–The Lawrence Hopewell Trail honored Sheree Davis, manager, Bureau of Commuter and Mobility Strategies for the N.J. Department of Transportation, with the first Annual Trailblazer’s Award. She received this for her commitment to the development and viability of to LHT at the Hopewell Valley Golf Club on June 12.

 

The award is presented to an individual who has blazed a way for the trail, a person who is committed to the development and viability of the trail in the community.

 

Among the many ways that Davis has supported the trail since its inception in 2002, she commissioned the RBA Group to conduct an investigation into the feasibility of the LHT, potential uses, possible routing and technical considerations. She also helped the LHT through three of the most problematic sections of the 22-mile route.

 

The Lawrence Hopewell Trail (LHT) is a 20+ miles bicycle and pedestrian recreational trail and transportation corridor through public and private lands in Lawrence and Hopewell Townships, Mercer County, New Jersey. The idea for the LHT grew out of a commitment to improving the quality of life for all who live or work in the region.  The LHT supports an active, livable, and sustainable community with alternative forms of transportation to reduce reliance on automobiles. It also promotes health and fitness, recreation, and outdoor education.

 

The LHT was conceived by employees of the Bristol-Myers Squibb Lawrenceville campus in 2001 and then quickly embraced by staff from Educational Testing Service (ETS).  The LHT was officially incorporated in 2002.ShereeDavis_2 ShereeDavis_1
