NJ DOT gives Secaucus $2.5M grant to repave Meadowlands Parkway


SECAUCUS – The New Jersey Department of Transportation has given Secaucus a $2.5 million grant for a repaving project on Meadowlands Parkway.
“This is huge, and we have been fighting for this for many months,” Town Administrator Gary Jeffas said in an email. The grant is part of Gov. Phil Murphy’s new Local Freight Impact Fund program, which has disseminated $30.1 million to 16 state municipalities to help them provide for safe movement of large truck traffic.
Under the program, projects that fall into four categories are eligible for funding: bridge preservation, new construction, pavement preservation, and truck safety and mobility.
Work on the repaving is likely to begin sometime next year, Jeffas said.
Secaucus wasn’t the only Hudson County town to get assistance. North Bergen received $555,960 in grant money for the Dell Avenue Improvement Project. The state also gave Bayonne $5,783,240 for its Peninsula at Bayonne Harbor Port Access Road Project. Hudson County itself received $5,334,764.95 for various county road improvements.
