SWEENEY, BURZICHELLI, RILEY ANNOUNCE OVER $3.2 MILLION IN TRANSPORTATION GRANTS FOR 3RD DISTRICT

Senate President Stephen M. Sweeney and Assembly members John J. Burzichelli and Celeste Riley today announced that the 3rd Legislative District will receive over $3.2 million in grants from the state Department of Transportation for various improvement projects.

“Improvements to our infrastructure are critical for our communities not just to provide a safe means of travel, but also to create economic opportunities for the region. These projects are thankfully getting the much needed funding they deserve,” said Sweeney.

“These funds are a much-needed and welcome boost for our area,” said Burzichelli. “Being able to improve our infrastructure and create jobs is a win-win for our residents.”

Given the significant cuts in aid across our state and the extremely harsh winters we’ve been having, this funding will go a long way towards addressing crucial transportation improvements in our district,” said Riley.
