Trenton Complete Streets Design Handbook

City streets are critical assets that need to be shared by everyone in our community. Unfortunately, too many of our streets prioritize the rapid movement of cars at over the safety of others. Complete Streets are streets designed and operated to enable safe use and support mobility for all users. Those include people of all ages and abilities, regardless of whether they are travelling as drivers, pedestrians, bicyclists, or public transportation riders.


The Trenton Complete Streets Design Handbook builds on previous studies and seeks to provide guidance on how to put the city’s Complete Streets resolution into practice by providing specific and general recommendations for streets in Trenton, based on their existing and desired characteristics. This document sets forth best practices by establishing and applying street typologies or categories to each street in Trenton and describing and illustrating the appropriate infrastructure for pedestrians, bicyclists, transit users, and motorists for each of those street types.


The Delaware Valley Regional Planning Commission has completed a draft of the Design Handbook and is seeking public comments before final adoption. The Design Handbook can be viewed here. Comments, questions, or concerns should be sent to Michael Kolber at
