The New Jersey Department of Transportation (NJDOT) awarded Hoboken $734,038 for transportation funding through the state’s 2020 “Municipal Aid Program.”
The funding will be used for various transportation infrastructure upgrades, including road repaving, as well as safety upgrades through Hoboken’s “Vision Zero” campaign.
“We are continuing to make major strides in upgrading our transportation infrastructure, and this funding will provide a significant boost to our efforts,” said Mayor Ravi Bhalla. “In addition to contributing to our aggressive road repaving program, the grant will provide us with important resources to help implement our Vision Zero pedestrian safety plan on our roadways. Thank you to Governor Murphy and the State Department of Transportation for making this funding available to Hoboken.”
In coordination with Hudson County, PSE&G, and the North Hudson Sewerage Authority, Hoboken repaved or planned for the repaving of more than 100 blocks of roads.
Since January of 2018, Hoboken has been awarded more than $2,671,983 in funding from the state’s Municipal Aid Program.
