TRENTON, NJ – The New Jersey Department of Transportation announced its 2019 Municipal Aid Grant Awards last week and South Plainfield once again appears to have made out well. The Borough received $542,200 towards the repair and resurfacing of St. Nicholas Avenue.

“I’m very pleased with the D.O.T. award,” said Mayor Anesh. “From the application crafted by our town engineer Len Miller to our local State Senator Patrick Diegnan I want to thank everyone involved in getting this aid.”

St. Nicholas Avenue which connects Hamilton Boulevard to South Clinton Avenue is one of the first legs of the truck route off route 287. The road in recent years has fallen into significant disrepair.

“In the last two years South Plainfield has received $1,423,750 in grant funding for Borough roads,” said Anesh. “I’m glad everyone has been able to work together to help get things done.”

“The DOT Municipal Aid will accelerate projects that improve areas our residents and drivers have identified as safety hazards,” said Assemblywoman Nancy Pinkin last week when the DOT awards were announced. “We will continue to invest in our infrastructure and ensure that our communities have safe roads to get to work, go to school, and respond to emergencies.”
