“This is welcome news for local residents who commute to school and work on roads that need resurfacing and bridges requiring maintenance,” said Oroho. “The burden on property taxpayers is eased with this infusion of money that helps pay for badly needed transportation improvements.”

The grants are provided by DOT through its Municipal Aid Program.

“Our towns send more than their fair share of money to Trenton, and our schools don’t get the educational aid they deserve,” said Space. “It’s a good day when local municipalities are on the receiving end of some cash flow.”

Mount Olive Township will receive $265,000 in funding. Stanhope Borough can anticipate $249,000 and Vernon Township will see $225,000.

“These are significant projects that will provide safer, more efficient roads across our region,” said Wirths. “The annual cost of maintaining and repairing the roadways takes a heavy toll on municipal budgets and the taxpayers who pay for them. These grants fund road work that will benefit the economy and last for years into the future.”
