Senator Declan O’Scanlon

Senator Declan O’Scanlon announced this afternoon that Monmouth County will receive $6 million in “Local Bridge, Future Needs” grants from the NJ Department of Transportation.  The money, which comes from the Transportation Trust Fund (gas tax) , will fund the reconstruction of bridges in Hazlet/Keansburg, Middletown, Neptune Township/Wall and Upper Freehold.

“This award demonstrates how the New Jersey Transportation Trust Fund is employed to support vital local projects,” said O’Scanlon (R-Monmouth). “I want to commend NJDOT Commissioner Diane Gutierrez-Scaccetti and Monmouth County Engineer Joe Ettore for their efforts to ensure that this grant program funds bridge projects around the state in a fair and appropriate manner.”
