Complete Streets

Two people on bikes ride in a bike lane.

Complete Streets are designed to ensure the safe and adequate accommodation of all users of the transportation system, including pedestrians, bicyclists, public transportation users, children, older individuals, individuals with disabilities, motorists, and freight vehicles. The NJ Department of Transportation and the US Department of Transportation promote the adoption of Complete Streets standards and policies. 


Complete Streets Technical Assistance Program

This program, funded by the NJTPA, supports municipalities by providing them with the knowledge, skills and resources to develop Complete Streets-related solutions. Technical assistance is provided through a partnership with Sustainable Jersey (SJ) and the Voorhees Transportation Center at Rutgers University (VTC). Selected participants receive free direct technical assistance to complete a specific task related to advancing a Complete Streets initiative in their community. No direct funding to municipalities is provided. 

The application period for the 2024-2025 round of technical assistance closed on February 2, 2024. Five projects will be selected through a competitive application process.
