BEDMINSTER, NJ -- The Township Committee Monday night introduced an ordinance to authorize funding of a 2020 Capital Project to repave portions of River Road.

The project would cost approximately $495,000.

The Township Committee would designate $40,000 from the Capital Improvement Fund, $205,000from the New Jersey Department of Transportation Fiscal Year 2018 Municipal Aid Program Grant for River Road West Section 1, and $250,000 from the New Jersey Department of Transportation Fiscal Year 2019 Municipal Aid Program Grant for River Road West Section 2.

The sums were provided for in the township's 2020 budget, and any grants received for the River Road project would be applied to direct payment of the cost of the improvements, and would then reduce the amount authorized from the capital improvement fund.
