NJ Dept of Transportation may cut $120M slated for Edison road improvements

(2/18/05) EDISON - The New Jersey Department of Transportation said Friday might be eliminating $120 million planned for improvement of roads around the state. Local municipalities may now have to find a way to pay for the improvements themselves.

According to an official with the New Jersey League of Municipalities, the cuts would have a devastating impact on towns and cities. Many local governments were depending on the money to pay for repaving and other transportation projects.

If transportation funding is cut it is possible taxpayers may have to pay for road repairs.
