Murphy announces $100M in additional FHWA funding for NJDOT projects

Emily Bader | ROI NJ

The Federal Highway Administration has provided the New Jersey Department of Transportation with an additional $100 million in federal funding, Gov. Phil Murphy announced on Thursday.

“This announcement is recognition that the Federal Highway Administration understands that New Jersey has the ability to build projects that improve the roads and bridges in an efficient manner” Murphy said. “As I outlined in my statewide economic plan, encouraging thriving and inclusive urban centers and downtowns cannot happen if enhancements to pedestrian safety, and walkable, bikeable, and healthy transportation options are not available. This funding helps us move forward toward that goal.”

The capital will fund 28 NJDOT projects in 19 counties, Murphy said. They include bridge preventative maintenance, pedestrian safety improvements, bikeway improvements, intersection improvements, capital projects that will ease congestion and improve safety, and more.

“This increased funding will allow the New Jersey Department of Transportation to get more work out on the street,” Diane Gutierrez-Scaccetti, commissioner, NJDOT, said.  “Throughout the state there are many important safety and improvement projects in the pipeline. We’ve got work to do and I’m pleased the Federal Highway Administration is providing the ability to get more projects done.”

Of the 29 projects, 10 are part of the Transportation Alternatives Set-Aside Program, which provides federal funds for community-based, non-traditional projects designed to strengthen the nation’s intermodal system.
