Total Investment for Local Transportation Infrastructure Nears $130 Million

The funding will come from the New Jersey Transportation Trust Fund (TTF), made possible by the TTF reauthorization legislation of 2016.

“From potholes to safety upgrades to the stress of yearly wear and tear, the continuous upkeep of our roadways is a necessary function of government,” Oroho said. “The State hadn’t been fully meeting the needs of localities with infrastructure improvements until we reauthorized the TTF with a robust infusion. As part of the TTF renewal, we doubled transportation funding to towns and counties which is enabling us to fund even more infrastructure projects and continue the process of addressing many vital repairs while not putting the cost on local property taxpayers.”

“New Jersey is the most densely populated state in the nation so our roads get beat up from heavy volume,” Space said. “This state aid will create jobs, improve our regional economy, and save local taxpayers from footing the bill through property taxes.”

“Keeping our streets well maintained is a matter of public safety,” Wirths said. “Because our legislative district is so large geographically, we have one of the most expansive network of local roadways in the state so the municipal aid program through the NJDOT is very critical to our area. This latest funding from the State will help make the drive smoother and safer for the motoring public.”

The legislators pointed out that including State aid to counties, local transportation aid to District 24 will total over $16 million. When you also add in projects being managed by the State as part of the NJDOT Capital Program, total investment for transportation infrastructure in Legislative District 24 comes to almost $130 million.
