Funding tops $161 million for New Jersey infrastructure improvements 


New York Construction Report staff writer

New Jersey Department of Transportation (NJDOT) has released $161.3 million for local infrastructure improvements. The program is funded through the New Jersey Transportation Trust

“The New Jersey Department of Transportation is committed to a safe, efficient, and equitable transportation system throughout the State, which means making investments in local infrastructure,” NJDOT Commissioner Diane Gutierrez-Scaccetti said in a statement. “County Aid provides millions of dollars to help improve county roads and bridges without burdening local property taxpayers.”

Twenty one counties will share $161.25 million through the County Aid program that helps maintain roads and bridges under county jurisdiction in a state of good repair for the thousands of motorists that count on them each day.

In addition, each county will receive a share of $981,000 in unexpended funds from the Statewide Transportation and Local Bridge Bond Act that must be used to rehabilitate and improve structurally deficient bridges.

Projects may be improvements to public roads and bridges under county jurisdiction, or other transportation related work.
