The New Jersey Department of Transportation (NJDOT) is providing $29 million in grants to projects in 11 counties that include track maintenance, bridge maintenance and new bridge construction. The funding comes from the NJDOT’s FY 2021 Rail Freight Assistance Program and covers more than half of each of the project’s cost. Railroad owners and operators will add $23 million to the pot.
“Targeted investments in New Jersey’s rail transportation network will strengthen our economy and ensure the safe and efficient movement of goods,” NJDOT Commissioner Diane Gutierrez-Scacceti said in a statement. “The projects funded through the Rail Freight Assistance program provide critical upgrades to our transportation infrastructure.”
About $9.4 million is earmarked for the replacement of the 120-year-old Point-No-Point Bridge across the Passaic River in Newark, N.J. Conrail will help with $20 million.
Under New Jersey Gov. Phil Murphy, the state has invested more than $104.1 million in freight rail services and railroad owners and operators have added $48.6 million.
