(Trenton) – The New Jersey Department of Transportation (NJDOT) today announced 42 Local Bridges Fund grants totaling $47.3 million to help counties maintain local bridges in good repair.  


“The Murphy Administration is committed to improving the quality of life in New Jersey, and the Local Bridge Fund program does that as part of NJDOT’s Commitment to Communities,” NJDOT Commissioner Diane Gutierrez-Scaccetti said.  “By providing grants to improve county-owned bridges throughout the state, we are helping local governments make critical infrastructure investments that improve the reliability of our statewide transportation network without impacting local property taxes.”

The Local Bridge Fund is a $47.3 million program funded through the Transportation Trust Fund (TTF). The program provides funding for each of New Jersey’s 21 counties to improve county bridges. The grants focus on repairing, reconstructing, and replacing bridges with the greatest structural deficiencies. Click here for a full list of county allotments and project awards.


The grants are administered by the NJDOT Division of Local Aid and Economic Development and evaluated by the Department’s Division of Bridge Engineering and Infrastructure Management. Each year, Local Aid grants represent a significant portion of the Department of Transportation’s Local System Support, including Municipal Aid, local lead projects, regional planning and project development, and transportation alternatives projects.
