DEANGELO & BENSON COMMEND TRANSPORTATION GRANTS TO 14TH DISTRICT

Grants will fund safety improvement projects

(14th DISTRICT) – Assembly Democrats Wayne P. DeAngelo and Dan Benson (both D-Mercer/Middlesex) commended $38,679 in transportation grants to West Windsor and South Brunswick that will be used to make highways safer and prevent crashes.

West Windsor and South Brunswick received $31,168 and $7,511, respectively, in Safe Corridor grants. The awards were among the 95 transportation grants awarded to municipalities, counties and general aviation airports for infrastructure improvement and safety projects.

“These funds will assist municipalities with projects that will make roads safer to travel,” said DeAngelo. “Many of us spend a considerable amount of time driving; it is reassuring to know these funds will be spent on implementing safety measures meant to minimize crashes.”

“The Safe Corridor Grant program covers stretches of roadway where there is an increased focus on reducing crashes. These funds will help address the dangerous elements of these roads and make them safer for motorists who depend on them every day,” said Benson.

Established in 2003, the Safe Corridor Grant program designates 14 ten-mile sections of state highways where enforcement and safety initiatives such as pavement markings and signal timing modification are carried out to reduce crashes.
