Some money from the INVEST in America Act is headed to North Jersey, with Rep. Josh Gottheimer (D-Wyckoff) announcing seven key transport and transit priorities for New Jersey’s 5th district.

“I’m proud to be working closely with North Jersey’s local counties towns and municipalities to request federal resources to help move these critical projects forward,” Gottheimer said. “If signed into a law, this federal investment will improve our local infrastructure and transportation and lower the property tac burden on our residents.”

The seven projects include Hackettstown Mobility Improvement, with a $4.7 million investment, Lackawanna Cut-off Culvert Replacement, with a $1.6 million investment, Patriots Way Bridge Superstructure Replacement, with a $4.18 million investment, Skyline Drive Bicycle and Pedestrian Bridge, with a $800,000 investment, Sussex County Guide Rail Update Program, with a million dollar investment, Teaneck Pedestrian Overpass Project, with a $4 million investment and West Milford Bikeway Connector Project, with a $536,000 investment.

The sponsors include the New Jersey Department of Transportation, New Jersey Transit, Brough of Oakland, County of Passaic, Sussex County, Township of Teaneck and Township of West Milford, respectively.

“People in our community are always concerned about the safety aspect of these intersections and I believe this funding will help greatly improving the safety aspect of these intersections,” said Hackettstown Mayor Jerry DiMaio.
