Complete Streets

New Brunswick adopted a Complete Streets Policy  in May 2012. "Complete Streets" are streets that accommodate all users of a street: motorists, cyclists, pedestrians and persons with all abilities, including the handicapped, the elderly and children.

  • A "Complete Streets" policy provides that local streets should be upgraded to accommodate all users when a road project is undertaken.
  • "Complete Streets" make the City more competitive for economic development 
  • Such a policy helps to improve the health of residents.
  • Policy includes exceptions for high costs or safety concerns
  • State, three counties and 26 other NJ towns have adopted similar policies

Complete Streets is not a project. It is a way of doing business going forward so that the needs of all users of a street are considered and to accommodate those needs by making design changes without substantially increasing the cost of the work.
