Upon news of the Department of Transportation (DOT) awarding municipal aid funding to towns throughout the 38th Legislative District, Senator Joseph Lagana, Assemblywoman Lisa Swain and Assemblyman Chris Tully (D-Bergen/Passaic) released the following joint statement:
“The funding that has been awarded to towns throughout Bergen and Passaic counties will make a noticeable difference in the lives of many of our residents.
“Roads that have fallen into disrepair can damage vehicles with potholes and uneven paving, which is why much of the funding has been directed to various roadway preservation projects. Streets will be rehabilitated and resurfaced to help ensure more smooth and reliable rides for drivers throughout towns such as Bergenfield, Fair Lawn, Paramus and many more.
“Most importantly, the New Milford funding will help ensure that Madison Ave. becomes a safer area for pedestrians to walk along the sidewalk.
“It’s important to maintain and improve public infrastructure as often as we can. We’re pleased the Department of Transportation has made this possible for our residents.”
