NJDOT Announces Complete Streets Workshops

The New Jersey Department of Transportation (NJDOT) today announced that it will host a series of Complete Streets workshops around the state to educate local governments on the basic concepts of Complete Streets policy, including policy adoption, design and implementation.

The first workshop in a series of 12 will be held Thursday, April 19th at the Rutgers Voorhees Transportation Center/Bloustein School in New Brunswick. 

 The workshops will be led by a team of experts, including NJDOT Office of Bicycle and Pedestrian Safety representatives and their engineering partners, who have developed an educational curriculum for decision-makers to learn about the benefits of adopting their own Complete Streets policies and how to design Complete Street improvements. 

 “When it comes to Complete Streets, New Jersey is leading the way toward safety for all who share the road,” said Commissioner James Simpson.  “Our Department-wide policy, adopted by NJDOT in 2009, has earned high praise for New Jersey and is being used as a model by other states and communities as they craft their own policies.”

NJDOT is sending workshop invitations to municipal officials to alert them of the date and location of the most geographically convenient workshop.  Ten of the twelve workshops have been scheduled, with one more planned for Monmouth County and one for Atlantic and Cape May counties.  Workshop participants can expect to achieve a better understanding of Complete Streets, the policy and design issues, and how to create a safer environment for all roadway users in their communities. 

 The Complete Streets concept is gaining traction statewide.  Along with NJDOT, 26 municipalities and one county in New Jersey have followed suit with formal policies in place.  The goal of the workshops is to dramatically increase those numbers.
