Complete Streets Policy
The New Jersey Department of Transportation (NJDOT) has been recognized as a national leader for advancing Complete Streets policies, which promote safety for pedestrians, bicyclists and other users of New Jersey roadways.
In 2009, the New Jersey Department of Transportation (NJDOT) passed a Complete Streets policy to help ensure the safe access and mobility of pedestrians, bicyclists and transit users of all ages and abilities on New Jersey's transportation network. This is accomplished through the planning, design, construction, maintenance and operation of new and rehabilitated transportation facilities. Complete Streets applies within public rights of way that are federally funded or state funded, and includes projects processed or administered through the NJDOT's Capital Program. NJDOT encourages regional and local jurisdictions to adopt and implement Complete Streets policies and continually makes training available to engineers, planners and policy-makers across the state.
