Complete Streets

Complete streets are streets designed for all users, all modes of transportation, and all ability levels. They balance the needs of drivers, pedestrians, bicyclists, transit riders, emergency responders, and goods movement based on the local context.


Complete Streets Technical Assistance Program

The NJTPA is partnering with Sustainable Jersey (SJ), the Voorhees Transportation Center at Rutgers University (VTC), and Together North Jersey (TNJ) on the Complete Streets Technical Assistance Program. Municipal governments require knowledge, skills, and resources to develop complete streets-related solutions, and the program supports their efforts. Selected participants receive free direct technical assistance to complete a specific task related to advancing a complete streets initiative in their communities. No direct funding to municipalities is provided. 

The application period for the 2022-2023 program opened on December 6, 2021. The deadline to apply is February 11. The application and recordings of the two informational webinars held in December can be viewed on the program page on the Sustainable Jersey website:
Complete Streets Technical Assistance – Sustainable Jersey

In 2020, eight municipalities were selected to receive technical assistance for complete streets projects ranging from workshops on walkability to bicycle network plans and crime prevention safety assessments. 

During 2019, nine municipalities participated. Final reports for their efforts under the program follow: 


Other Efforts

Related planning undertaken by the NJTPA supports Complete Streets in the region – see Planning for Emerging Centers and Bicycle-Pedestrian pages.  In addition, NJDOT has various resources for creating Complete Streets, including  “Complete & Green Streets for All,” addressing traditional complete streets designs and green stormwater infrastructure.
