Complete Streets

Two people on bikes ride in a bike lane.

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

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.

Other Efforts

Other planning efforts at the NJTPA support Complete Streets, including Planning for Emerging Centers studies and Bicycle-Pedestrian resources. Communities can create short-term or quick-build projects with the help of the the Complete Streets Demonstration Library.

In addition, information on policy, design, and best practices are available from the NJDOT Complete Streets Resources web page and from the NJ Bicycle and Pedestrian Resource Center.
