Sustainable Jersey, the Voorhees Transportation Center at Rutgers University, the North Jersey Transportation Planning Authority and Together North Jersey are offering free technical assistance to support implementation of complete streets at the municipal level. 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 local context.
Through this competitive program, six to eight municipalities will be selected to work with the project team to develop solutions to walking, biking, safety, and other needs. No direct funding to municipalities is provided. Municipalities in the NJTPA’s 13-county region (Bergen, Essex, Hudson, Hunterdon, Monmouth, Morris, Ocean, Passaic, Somerset, Sussex, Union and Warren counties) are eligible to apply.
