FY2020 Safety Projects
The North Jersey Transportation Planning Authority Board of Trustees approved 13 projects that will make travel safer for motorists, pedestrians and bicyclists throughout the region during its November 9 meeting.
The projects were approved for grants through the NJTPA’s fiscal year 2020 Local Safety and High Risk Rural Roads programs, which provide federal funds to counties and cities for cost-effective solutions that can make an immediate impact on their target areas.
The Board approved allocating $71.2 million for Local Safety Program projects and nearly $25 million for a High Risk Rural Roads Program project. The $96 million in overall funds allocated to these projects marks a new high for the programs.
