NJDOT awards $1.3 million in
FY97 local aid to Warren County municipalities
Governor Christie Whitman and Acting Transportation Commissioner John J. Haley, Jr. today announced the award of more than $1.3 million in local aid to 16 Warren County municipalities for local street repair and resurfacing projects.
"In my State-of -the-State address, I made mention of a road to a brighter future. The NJDOT’s Local Aid program helps provide those brighter futures as a major funding source for hundreds of municipal road projects each year," Whitman said.
"This program is the perfect example of her commitment to providing property tax relief to the municipalities and of the NJDOT’s commitment to rebuild our roads at all levels," Haley added.
A list of the Warren County municipalities receiving FY97 Local Aid grants is attached.
The Local Aid Program is supported by the New Jersey Transportation Trust Fund. Under legislation signed by Governor Whitman in 1995, the Transportation Trust Fund was renewed and local aid funding was increased from $100 million to $130 million per year.
