Ocean County Receives Nearly $13 Million In State Infrastructure Grants

Ocean County is receiving nearly $13 million in state grants to allow the county to make infrastructure improvements on the local level.

The county will be receiving a total of $12,915,883 through the County Aid program that helps maintain roads and bridges under county jurisdiction in a state of good repair for the thousands of motorists that count on them each day.

A total of $161.25 million was distributed to the state’s 21 counties.

The total includes an allotment of $78,093 in unexpended funds from the Statewide Transportation and Local Bridge Bond Act of 1999 that are being reappropriated based on the recently passed Senate Bill S3953.

These funds must be used to rehabilitate and improve structurally deficient bridges consistent with the Local Bridge Fund program and be awarded by June 30, 2025.

County Aid funds are apportioned based on population and road mileage in each county, and each county selects the projects that receive funding.

Counties are required to submit eligible projects, identified in the County’s annual Transportation Program to NJDOT for approval prior to December 1, 2023.

Projects may be improvements to public roads and bridges under county jurisdiction, or other transportation related work.

  1. I’d like to rhyme
    about the 9
    its something that’s been long on my mind

    the traffic in this town
    is felt all around
    it sometimes bring those big poles down

    now alleviating it
    is a really big snit
    we’re told it’ll take quite some grit

    now that there’s some money
    in Ocean county
    would you please direct some to lakewood towny?
