Trenton to Receive $1.3 Million in Municipal Aid Grant Awards from NJDOT

Trenton, N.J. – Mayor W. Reed Gusciora announced today that the City of Trenton will receive more than $1.3 million in state grant funding to make long-overdue repairs to Greenwood Ave and Chestnut Ave. 

“We are very grateful to have been awarded the third largest grant amount in the state, and to be one of three municipalities that received awards for more than one project," said Mayor Gusciora. “This funding will allow us to advance two critical infrastructure projects that will restore two of our busiest roads.”

Governor Phil Murphy and N.J. Department of Transportation (NJDOT) Commissioner Diane Gutierrez-Scaccetti last week announced $161.25 million in Fiscal Year 2022 municipal aid grants to be distributed to 541 cities and towns throughout New Jersey. 

Under the Municipal Aid grant program, each county is apportioned a share of the total funding based on population and the number of local centerline miles. Municipalities compete for portions of their county’s share. NJDOT provides 75 percent of the grant amount when a town awards a contract and the remaining 25 percent upon completion of the project.

The Chestnut Ave project will use $397,634 in grant funds to restore a heavily trafficked roadway that has sections between 50 and 100 years old. The other $910,647 will be used to repave Greenwood Ave, a main artery that connects residents and visitors to Trenton Central High School, government buildings, houses of worship, the Transit Center, St. Francis Medical Center and other important sites.

The two projects will complement several other paving projects throughout Trenton. PSE&G is finishing up repaving more than 30 roads all over the city that were disrupted due to line maintenance. The Gusciora Administration is also finalizing a $2 million plan to pave 57 additional City streets starting in the Spring 2022.
