Jersey City used demonstration projects during a recent study to show community members what pedestrian improvements, including corner extensions, could look like at six intersections.
The NJTPA has awarded complete streets technical assistance to nine municipalities in North Jersey. Work will include walkability workshops, a bicycle network audit and low-cost temporary changes, called tactical urbanism, to demonstrate what improvements — such as corner extensions — could look like.
Complete streets are roads that are designed to be accessible to all users and all ability levels.
The NJTPA is funding the assistance — up to $10,000 for each municipality — which is being provided by Sustainable Jersey and the Alan M. Voorhees Transportation Center at Rutgers, the State University of New Jersey.
- Bernardsville Borough (Somerset County) — Walkability Workshop
- Cranford Township (Union County) — Complete Streets Conceptualizations
- Eatontown Borough (Monmouth County) — Complete Streets Conceptualizations
- Glen Rock Borough (Bergen County) — Walkability Workshop
- Leonia Borough (with Fort Lee & Palisades Park in Bergen County) — Bicycle Audit and Corridor Plan with Maps and Narrative
- Milltown Borough (Middlesex County) — Tactical Urbanism Guidance
- Parsippany-Troy Hills Township (Morris County) — Walkability Workshop
- Red Bank Borough (Monmouth County) — Tactical Urbanism Guidance

In addition to the technical assistance, the NJTPA, in partnership with Sustainable Jersey and the Voorhees Transportation Center, has already conducted three workshops for municipalities on implementing complete streets at the local level.
