EDISON, NJ – Senator Patrick Diegnan, Assemblywoman Nancy Pinkin and Assemblyman Robert Karabinchak with New Jersey Department of Transportation (NJDOT) officials today announced $3.3 million in state funding for the transportation projects throughout the 18th district in Middlesex County in the form of paving and road improvements.


“I want to commend Governor Murphy for acting quickly to promote public safety and creating local jobs in allowing each municipality in our district to maintain its local roads and bridges in a state of good repair," said Senator Patrick Diegnan (D-Middlesex). “Because we strongly supported our Transportation Trust Fund, we are able to invest $2 billion each year back into our state's infrastructure and demonstrate our shared commitment to relieve pressure on local property taxpayers."


“Working to reduce the financial burdens for our residents while ensuring and improving their safety is my top priority. Securing funding for transportation projects in every town in the 18th District does just that,” said Assemblywoman Nancy Pinkin (D-Middlesex). “Grants like these ensure that we are on the right path to help with the redevelopment plans in towns such as East Brunswick and Highland Park.”

“I am thrilled to tell our constituents that we were able to deliver money for projects in every single town in our district,” said Assemblyman Robert Karabinchak (D-Middlesex). “However, this is just the beginning; Patrick, Nancy and I will continue to work closely with the Governor Murphy administration to bring back every single possible dollar from Trenton so that we can fund more necessary projects all over our district.”



The state legislators highlighted the upcoming transportation projects ranging from improvements to Rues Lane in East Brunswick Township, a paving project in the Lindquist Park Area in Edison Township, road improvements to Helmetta Boulevard in Helmetta, improvements to Meriland and South Seventh Avenues in the Borough of Highland Park, improvements to Pearl Street in Borough of Metuchen, improvements and paving to Hadley Road in the Borough of South Plainfield, and improvements to Willett Avenue in the Borough of South River.


The precise timing of the work will be announced in the coming weeks by NJDOT subject to change due to weather or other factors. Motorists are encouraged to check NJDOT's traffic information website  for updated information and for NJDOT news follow them on Twitter @NJDOTinfo.
