New Jersey Set to Get Nearly $90M for Road Repairs

Flickr User Jay Greinsky

New Jersey is set to receive almost $90 million in highway disaster relief grants from the federal government.  

The funds will be used to fix and reconstruct roads and bridges damaged by Hurricane Irene, Tropical Storm Lee and flooding in August 2011.

“This federal funding will help finance repairs and rebuild the roadways that were destroyed by powerful storms in our state last year,” said New Jersey U.S Senator Frank Lautenberg. 

The money is thanks to the Federal Highway Administration’s disaster relief program.  In November 2011, President Barack Obama poured $1.66 billion to increase the fund. 

“Last summer’s massive storms and floods caused incredible damage to many of our roadways and we knew that only through a strong federal-local partnership could we ensure our state had the resources necessary for both immediate repair and long-term recovery,” said New Jersey U.S. Senator Bob Menendez. 

It has not been announced yet which roadways and bridges in New Jersey will be repaired.
