The New Jersey Department of Transportation announced the award of a $231,500.00 grant to the Township of Maple Shade. The grant award, as part of the NJDOT FY2020 Municipal Aid Grant Program, will be combined with a previous NJDOT award in the amount of $250,000.00 and will assist the Township with the rehabilitation of roadway on Collins Lane & N. Coles Road project. The total cost of the resurfacing project is estimated to be approximately $500,000.00 and will include paving, concrete work, curbs, utility infrastructure and stormwater run-off drainage improvements. This project will be scheduled in the Township 2020-2021 Road Improvement Program.
Since 2018 the Township of Maple Shade has applied for many grants, in an effort to generate additional revenue for municipal improvements without placing the burden directly on the residents. With the latest announcement, the total value of grants awarded is approximately $751,500.00.
