NJTPA Mission

The NJTPA is the regional transportation planning leader and technical and informational resource for the people of northern New Jersey that:

  • Links transportation plans with economic growth, environmental protection, growth management, safety and security, and quality of life goals for the region.

  • Develops a plan for transportation improvement and management to fulfill the vision

  • Creates a vision to meet the mobility needs of northern New Jersey

  • Prioritizes federal funding assistance to make that plan a reality

Congestion

Delay Ratio on Regional Roadways

Delay is the added travel time that results from traveling in congested conditions. The delay ratio is the amount of delay that vehicles experience while traveling on a road, as percentage of their total travel time on that road. This map shows the delay ratio for travel in the peak period.


High cost bridges
High Cost Bridges

Route 7 bridge over the Hackensack River (Wittpenn Bridge): Construction cost estimated at $452 million.

Route 1&9 Pulaski Skyway:. Reconstruction cost estimated at $1.2 billion. Interim repairs will cost at least $100 million/year (over 7-8 years).




Regional Transportation Planning Goals

Retain and Increase Economic Activity and Competitiveness

Enhance System Coordination, Efficiency, and Intermodal Connectivity

Provide Affordable, Accessible and Dynamic Transportation Systems Responsive to Current and Future Customers

Maintain a Safe and Reliable Transportation System in a State of Good Repair

Protect and Improve the Quality of Natural Ecosystems and the Human Environment

Select Transportation Investments that Support the Coordination of Land Use with Transportation Systems

Plan 2035

Help Northern New Jersey Grow Wisely

Make Travel Safer

Fix it First

Expand Public Transit

Improve Roads but Add Few

Plan 2035 s development process

Created a Plan 2035 website and 1-800 line

Plan 2035’s Development Process

  • Discussed critical issues with Board of Trustees and broad Technical Advisory Committee

  • Used the results, feedback & comments to develop a vision for the future of the region

  • Created an interactive visioning tool and used it at regional workshops

  • Performed Technical Analysis and Scenario Planning

  • Held Symposium to explore emerging issues


Recurring themes what we ve heard

Focus investments:

New transit services and in transit system capacity

More frequent transit services

Transit services that focus on the “last mile”

Making bus service more competitive to the auto (preferential treatments and BRT)

Recurring Themes: What We’ve Heard

  • Prioritize maintenance and preservation of the existing transportation system, a.k.a. Fix It First.

  • Develop Smarter: Focus development and redevelopment around transit and in livable mixed-use communities.

  • Need to spend more, but little agreement about where new funding should come from.


What is scenario planning

Three Scenarios Explored:

Baseline: Flat Funding; Existing Growth Patterns Continue

Plan 2035: Additional Funding; New Growth in Centers

Aspirational: More Additional Funding; Most New Growth

in Centers

What is Scenario Planning?


Plan 2035 scenario

The cornerstone scenario of Plan 2035.

Assumes that some additional new funding is available to the region:

To maintain its existing infrastructure

To add a few critical new links to improve capacity and system performance

Assumes improved land use policies: more regional growth in development and redevelopment around transit stations/stops and in mixed-use centers.

Summary of Plan 2035 Capital Funding Assumptions(in 2009 Billions of Dollars)

1- Average growth rates are over plan period from 2010 to 2035.

2- Federal program growth shown is average annual rate, though funding increases occur every six years.



What the region must do

Bring infrastructure to a state of good repair and keep it there.

Make major investments in public transit.

Insist on smart development and redevelopment.

Make targeted corridor improvements:

Apply ITS

Address bottlenecks and problematic intersections

Improve safety

Accommodate bicyclists and pedestrians

Advance freight-specific improvements

What The Region Must Do


FY 2010-2013 there.

Transportation Improvement Program

$10 billion in investments over the first four years.

Emphasis on Fix It First: The majority of funds are going toward system management and preservation.

- 83% maintaining and managing the transit and roadway system

- 5% roadway expansion

  • 12% transit expansion

    In FY 2010, more than $1.5 billion is programmed for 265 NJDOT highway and bridge projects and programs, and almost $1.2 billion for 58 NJ Transit projects and programs.


Air quality
Air Quality there.

  • Conformity process ensures transportation investment contributes to improving air quality where it is needed.

  • Important air quality measures include:

    • Fine particulate matter (PM2.5)

    • 8 hour ozone

    • Carbon monoxide (CO)

  • Projects in the TIP and Plan 2035 have met Federal Conformity standards.


Coordination and Consultation there.

NJTPA Board/Committee Oversight

NJTPA Central Staff

Other MPOs

NJTPA RTAC

Stakeholder Groups

Local, Public Input
