Mayor Reed Gusciora announced on Monday that Trenton received more than $1.1 million in municipal aid from the New Jersey Department of Transportation for roadway preservation.

“This $1.1 million will help the City of Trenton repair and maintain its roads,” said Mayor Reed Gusciora. “This investment from the State into the Capital City shows the State’s commitment to moving Trenton forward, not only for our residents, but for all of New Jersey. The 20,000 State employees who come into Trenton daily use our roads. As a result, our local infrastructure of the Capital City impacts the entire state.”

Gusciora noted that the City will receive $1,163,151 and was secured through the efforts of 15th district legislators.

“I want to thank Governor Murphy and Transportation Commissioner Diane Gutierrez-Scaccetti for their commitment to the Capital City. It was also great teamwork by Senator Shirley Turner, Assemblywoman Verlina Reynolds-Jackson, and Assemblyman Anthony Verrelli for making this happen and their advocacy on behalf of Trenton residents,” Gusciora concluded.
