The $161 million in Transportation Trust Fund (TTF) grants that Gov. Phil Murphy announced last week will fund more than 500 road projects and repairs in every county in the state.
“The renewal of the Transportation Trust Fund made it possible to more than double the size of the grant program from $78.75 million in 2017 to $161.25 million in 2018,” Murphy said. “These funds are instrumental in allowing each municipality to maintain its local roads and bridges in a state of good repair. Providing Municipal Aid grants to nearly 90 percent of our towns and cities is truly historic and demonstrates our commitment to relieve pressure on local property taxpayers.”
TTF was renewed in late 2016 as it ran out of money for new projects.
