The New Jersey Department of Transportation has awarded Hoboken $937,945 for transportation funding through the state’s 2019 “Municipal Aid Program.”
This funding will be used by the city for various transportation projects including road repaving, the implementation of complete streets, and pedestrian safety upgrades related to Hoboken’s “Vision Zero,” according to a press release from the city.
“Upgrading our transportation infrastructure, especially our road repaving and pedestrian safety initiatives, are major priorities for my administration,” said Mayor Ravi Bhalla. “This funding will help fund our proactive road repaving schedule, with over 100 blocks planned to be repaved in the city this year. I thank Governor Murphy and the State DOT for this generous award.”
The city has received nearly $2 million from the Municipal Aid Program over the past two years.
