(TRENTON) – All nine towns in the 14th legislative district, spanning parts of Mercer and Middlesex counties, will receive grant awards to advance infrastructure improvement projects as part of the New Jersey Department of Transportation’s Municipal Aid grant program.
The selected municipalities include East Windsor, Hamilton, Hightstown and Robbinsville in Mercer County and Cranbury, Jamesburg, Monroe, Plainsboro and Spotswood in Middlesex County.
Assemblyman Daniel Benson (D-Mercer, Middlesex) released the following statement in support of the grant awards made possible through the renewal of the Transportation Trust Fund:
“This grant program is a shining example of what can happen when we invest in our transportation system. By renewing the Transportation Trust Fund four years ago, we created a path to provide towns with resources to make improvements to local roads and bridges with the goal to increase safety and provide a better quality of life. While upgrades to major highways are always important, it’s road projects at the local level that impact drivers on a daily basis. These state grants help ease the burden on the local property taxpayers while investing in the road infrastructure we use every day.
“I look forward to seeing safer and more convenient roads across Mercer and Middlesex counties.”
