   WEST WINDSOR — A study of sidewalk and bicycling conditions in the township is set to be presented at Thursday’s meeting of the Bicycle and Pedestrian Task Force.
   The study, recently completed by consultant Orth-Rodgers & Associates with help from a township steering committee, will be unveiled 6:30 p.m. at the Municipal Building.
   Funded by a state Department of Transportation grant, the purpose of the study was to identify preferred bikeways and trails, develop design standards and concept improvements for new facilities and selected areas and study existing conditions.
   The study "is a major factor in making West Windsor pedestrian- and bicycle-friendly," said Mayor Shing-Fu Hsueh in a prepared statement. Residents who attend the public forum can also learn about new technological enhancements for bicycle and pedestrian facilities and suggestions for traffic-calming measures.
   Mr. Hsueh said he hopes the study will eventually be incorporated in the township’s Master Plan, but he wants to hear public input on the study first.
