The New Jersey Department of Transportation has awarded money to Princeton for road improvements and sidewalks.
“The Christie Administration strongly supports funding for Local Aid because it understands how important it is for government at all levels to provide safe streets and roads for motorists and pedestrians alike,” said NJDOT Commissioner James Simpson. “These grants advance local projects without placing a burden on local property taxpayers.”
In Princeton Township, the grant of $261,676 will be used to improve drainage and reconstruct the southern portion of Great Road West between Stuart Road and the Great Road, Township Engineering Assistant Anthony Soriano said.
Princeton Borough will use its $220,000 grant to repave and replace curbs and sidewalks along Moore Street, Park Place and Vandeventer Avenue, in accordance with ADA requirements, Borough Engineer Jack West said. The project will probably begin in the fall, he said.
Each grant was awarded under the Municipal Aid program, which distributed $76.1 million in 374 grants across the state, according to a news release.
