City of Asbury Park Awarded $434,706 NJ Department of Transportation Municipal Aid Program Grant for Eighth Avenue Road Improvements and Capital Projects Updates
12/22/21, Asbury Park, NJ – The City of Asbury Park has been awarded a $434,706 Municipal Aid Program Grant by the New Jersey Department of Transportation (NJDOT) to fund a roadway improvement project on Eighth Avenue from Deal Lake Drive to Kingsley Street. The project, which is anticipated to start construction in 2022, will include curb upgrades for ADA compliance at every intersection, new driveway aprons, partial sidewalk replacement, sanitary sewer upgrades, drainage improvements, full-depth road reconstruction and final repaving and restriping.
“We’re thrilled to be awarded this NJDOT grant and look forward to improving Eighth Avenue which has been in dire need of repair,” said Mayor John Moor, “City Council’s goal is to bring all Asbury Park streets up to the latest standards, making them safer for pedestrians, cyclists and motorists. Over the last five years, more than 10 miles of streets have been repaved—representing approximately 27% of City streets. In addition, the project includes the replacement of the century-old sanitary sewer system under the street which we have been addressing in all street projects. We look forward to continuing this much-needed work.”
“Asbury Park was one of over 625 applicants who requested more than $363 million in funding from the $161.25 million NJDOT Municipal Aid program,” said Transportation Director Michael Manzella, “The program allows municipalities to request assistance for improvements of local transportation networks. We’re grateful for the State’s support and will be using the grant to supplement existing capital investment that the City allocates to transportation improvements each year.”
