New Jersey was one of the first states in the nation to adopt a Complete Streets policy and has successfully compelled 134 municipalities and 8 counties to adopt their own policies.  But adopting policies through resolutions is one thing and physically creating safer streets is another. To that end the NJ Department of Transportation has focused more on implementation planning and design guidance with a trio of resource manuals located here.

  • Making Complete Streets a Reality: A Guide to Policy Development
  • A Guide to Creating a Complete Streets Implementation Plan
  • Complete Streets Design Guide

2017 State of New Jersey Complete Streets Design Guide by Bicycle Coalition of Greater Philadelphia on Scribd

The Design Guide is the most important document of the three because it also replaces bicycle and pedestrian design guidance adopted by NJDOT in the 1990’s. For NJ transportation advocates the guide is a useful tool to argue for better infrastructure in their home towns.
