Session 1: Complete Streets in New Jersey: A 10-Year Look Back
Welcoming remarks from New Jersey Department of Transportation. In 2009, NJDOT became a national leader in Complete Streets by passing an award-winning policy. Over the past ten years hundreds of engineers, planners, and others have been trained, skeptics have become advocates, and innovative projects have been funded and completed. Join us as we look back at successes through policies, projects, and partnerships.
Session 2: Connecting to the Future: What’s in Store for Complete Streets in the Next 10 Years
Many New Jersey municipalities have adopted a Complete and Green Streets approach or have accelerated projects in response to COVID-19. With pandemic recovery on the horizon, what’s in store for implementing Complete Streets in the future? How can we reduce serious injuries or fatalities among our vulnerable road users? What technologies are on the horizon that will impact Complete Streets? Panelists will discuss these issues and more as they share their vision for the future.
