RARITAN TWP. — Although a biking and hiking path roughly parallel to the South Branch of the Raritan River was John King’s idea, it did not follow him out the door when he left the Township Committee to join the Hunterdon County Board of Freeholders.

According to 2012 mayor Oliver Elbert, the rest of the committee is committed to the concept. In fact, the township is conducting a traffic study on the section of River Road between Route 202 and Case Boulevard to see about turning it into a one-way street.
