Broad coalition calls for New Jersey "Complete Streets"

Citing the rising rate of pedestrian fatalities in New Jersey, a coalition of planning, environment, transportation and health groups today are calling on Governor Corzine to adopt a "Complete Streets" policy as a means of improving safety on roadways and creating viable transportation choices. The group includes the Tri-State Transportation Campaign, New Jersey Future, the Bicycle Coalition of Greater Philadelphia, the New Jersey Chapter of the AARP, Disability Rights New Jersey, and Environment NJ.

A Complete Streets policy would direct transportation agencies to design for walkers, bicyclists, motor vehicles, and transit riders and vehicles whenever a road is constructed or reconstructed. Tri-State Transportation Campaign has already successfully campaigned for complete streets legislation in Connecticut.
