Overview

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.

NJDOT's Policy received the highest ranking among the more than 210 communities and states that have adopted formal Complete Streets policies, according to a new report (pdf 2.5m) released by the National Complete Streets Coalition. New Jersey was one of the first ten states in the nation to make Complete Streets an official internal policy.

NJDOT finalized a Complete Streets policy in December 2009. The policy requires that future roadway improvement projects include safe accommodations for all users, including bicyclists, pedestrians, transit riders and the mobility-impaired.

This policy is implemented through the planning, design, construction, maintenance and operation of new or rehabilitated transportation facilities within public rights of way that are federally or state funded, including projects processed or administered by the Department.
