Ridgewood Scores $149K Grant to Pave Winter-Wrecked Roadway

The state announced $81.6 million worth of grants awarded to municipalities across New Jersey.

Ridgewood is one of 47 towns in Bergen County that will be receiving grant money from the state in order to repair its roadways, Gov. Chris Christie announced in a release Tuesday.

The village is slated to receive $149,000 to pave North Van Dien Avenue, the state announced.

The grant is part of a package of 391 municipal grants statewide that total $81.6 million. The grants, officials said, are meant mostly to help pave roadways compromised by the harsh winter, and to develop “quality-of-life” projects.

“These grants promote motorist, pedestrian and bicyclist safety, mobility and quality-of-life projects,” NJDOT Commissioner James Simpson said in the release.

“Most of the Municipal Aid grants will support street paving or preservation projects, and will arrive in time for towns to make much needed repairs after a brutal winter.”
