Dozens of NJ Towns to Share $5M for Roadwork

Ilya Hemlin, Townsquare Media

This morning, Gov. Chris Christie’s Administration announced the award of $5 million in grants to 64 towns to promote safety along designated Safe Corridor highway segments and to advance local street rehabilitation projects.

“The New Jersey Department of Transportation’s (NJDOT) top priority is safety, and these grants fund local enforcement and capital improvement projects that help make our roads safer,” says NJDOT Commissioner James Simpson. “The funding helps local governments achieve their objectives without burdening local property taxpayers.”

A total of 56 municipalities will share $3 million in FY 13 Safe Corridors grants and eight municipalities will share $2.15 million in FY 13 Local Aid Infrastructure Fund grants.  The grants are administered by the NJDOT.

The Safe Corridor grant program began in 2003. It targets resources to 14 ten-mile segments along highways that have a history of high crash rates. Grants are supported by fines, which are doubled in designated Safe Corridors for a variety of moving violations, including speeding.

The FY 13 Safe Corridors funding is being doled out based on crash data, with higher amounts of funding going to areas demonstrating the greatest need for continued enhanced enforcement measures. Segments of Route 1, Route 9, Route 22, Route 40, Route 46, Route 47, Route 73 and Route 206 are receiving FY 13 funding.
