TRENTON - Nearly 400 local aid grants totaling $81.6 million have been announced by the Christie administration to help advance a variety of transportation projects across the state.

A total of 377 municipalities will receive $78.6 million in Municipal Aid grants, while 14 other grants totaling $3 million were announced under the Transit Village, Local Bikeway, and Safe Streets to Transit programs.

"These grants promote motorist, pedestrian and bicyclist safety, mobility and quality-of-life projects," said NJDOT Commissioner James Simpson.  "Most of the Municipal Aid grants will support street paving or preservation projects, and will arrive in time for towns to make much needed repairs after a brutal winter."

All of the grants are being funded through the New Jersey Transportation Trust Fund.
