Cars travel over the Oradell Avenue Bridge in Oradell, NJ.The NJTPA Board at its September 9 meeting approved funding for five new Concept Development studies of critical local bridges.

The studies are part of the Local Capital Project Delivery Program, a competitive program which provides federal funding to NJTPA subregions—the 15 city and county members of the NJTPA—to prepare projects for eventual construction with federal funding.  

The approved studies are being funded for Fiscal Year 2020, which began July 1. The studies, totalling $2.4 million, are:

Bergen County: Oradell Avenue Bridge over the Hackensack River, Borough of Oradell
