The grants consist of 13 Local Aid Infrastructure Fund grants totaling $2.75 million, eight Rail Freight Assistance Program grants for $6.6 million and four State Airport Improvement Program grants totaling $2 million.

“The range of these grants illustrate how diverse modes of travel give shape to New Jersey’s robust transportation network,” said NJDOT Commissioner James Simpson.  “These grants promote air, rail and vehicular transportation, each of which plays a role in driving our economy.  The Local Aid Infrastructure Fund grants allow municipalities and counties to make vital improvements to streets without burdening local property taxpayers.”

The Local Aid Infrastructure Fund grants range from $37,000 to $430,000 and have been awarded to municipalities in 13 counties and will fund projects which include repairs to streets, drainage systems, a railroad crossing and a boardwalk.

The eight freight railroad grants range from $202,000 to $1.6 million and will support track rehabilitation and construction projects.  Meanwhile, the general aviation airports will receive four grants.  Trenton-Mercer Airport in Mercer County will receive nearly $1.4 million.  Sky Manor Airport in Hunterdon County will receive $147,250 while Central Jersey Airport in Somerset County will receive two grants totaling $212,000.
