TRENTON, NJ - The Safe Corridor grant program dates to 2003 and targets resources to 14 10-mile segments along highways, including U.S. 1 running through Edison, that have a history of high crash rates. Grants are supported by fines, which are doubled in designated Safe Corridors for a variety of moving violations, including speeding.

The Christie Administration announced that the Township of Edison will receive $95,995.23 as part of a Safe Corridor grant to purchase traffic enforcement equipment including police vehicles, radar equipment, computer hardware and software and to pay salaries.

“The Christie Administration understands the importance of Local Aid in helping counties and municipalities improve roads and bridges without burdening local property taxpayers,” NJDOT Commissioner Jamie Fox said. “Maintaining New Jersey’s roads and bridges in a state of good repair is a priority for the Administration, and these grants help communities do just that.”

FY 14 Safe Corridors funding is being allocated based on crash data, with higher amounts of funding going to areas demonstrating the greatest need for continued enhanced enforcement measures. Segments of Route 1, Route 9, Route 22, Route 40, Route 46, Route 47, Route 73 and Route 206 are receiving FY 14 funding.
