Mayor William Pikolycky is pleased to announce that the New Jersey Department of Transportation Local Municipal Aid Program has awarded the Borough of Woodbine $210,000 in grant funding for its 2011 Borough Road Program.
The Borough submitted two applications to DOT for roadway reconstruction and drainage improvements for Sumner Avenue and Heilprin ($721,844) and for Fremont Avenue ($526,815).
“The award of $210,000, while it will not cover all phases of the proposed work, will however permit us to begin these improvements,” noted Mayor Pikolycky. “This was one of several applications Woodbine made to NJDOT under various municipal programs. Announcements in the other areas are still pending. Without these important Transportation Trust Fund programs we would not be able to maintain our infrastructure without an added burden to our tax payers.”
