58% or 274 Miles of Roads in Wharton Have Been Closed

In the press release from the DEP, it was almost spun as if the Motorized Access Plan (M.A.P.) expanded access.  In the FAQ, it was claimed that “the majority of the roads are open”.  However, the DEP has been less than honest about the extent of the road closures.  An assessment was done by Open Trails NJ and we found that 58% or 274 miles of roads have been closed to motor vehicles.  Please see the attached for a visual.  A KMZ file could be provided upon request for independent review.
