In an effort to help counties maintain the durability of local bridges, the New Jersey Department of Transportation announced 32 Local Bridges Fund grants June 1 totaling $47.3 million.
Funded through the Transportation Trust Fund, the Local Bridges Fund is a $47.3 million program that provides money for each of New Jersey’s 21 counties for the improvement of county bridges.
The grants focus on the repair, reconstruction and replacement of bridges with the greatest structural deficiencies.
“The state of good repair of New Jersey’s transportation infrastructure is a priority of the Murphy Administration. The Local Bridges Fund grant program offers our local governments the ability to use grant funds to invest in bridge projects in their communities,” said NJDOT Commissioner Diane Gutirrez-Scaccetti. “This grant program, along with others, continues to demonstrate NJDOT’s commitment to communities throughout New Jersey.”
The grants are administered by the NJDOT Division of Local Aid and Economic Development and evaluated by the Department’s Bureau of Structural Engineering.
