The Township of Millburn sought to undertake a complete streets initiative to better balance the needs of all users of their downtown. Previously, the downtown was hindered by congestion and was a dangerous place for pedestrians, as evidenced by the high volume of crashes.

Arterial teamed with Sam Schwartz to initiate a comprehensive study of the entire downtown which included a detailed transportation and urban design analysis. From this analysis, a number of streetscape and traffic calming design features were recommended. These recommendations were communicated extensively to the public through a series of community meetings. These features included narrowed travel lanes, reduction in the number of travel lanes, intersection bump-outs, mid-block crosswalks, traffic signal coordination, parking lot access and identification improvements, reverse angle parking, stormwater planters and significant improvements to the pedestrian amenities throughout the downtown.
