$200K-Plus Coming to Central Jersey Airport From State
Pair of infrastructure grants will support improvement projects.
Hillsborough's Central Jersey Airport will receive more than $200,000 in state infrastructure grants, according to the New Jersey Department of Transportation.
A pair of grants, totaling $212,496, will go to the airport as part of 25 grants the department is giving out to advance improvement projects throughout the state. The total amount of the grants is $11.4 million.
One of the grants the airport is due to receive, earmarked for $147,250, will support a project to build a general aviation jet fuel tank and self-service system. The other, which will be for $65,246, is for security fencing. Both grants are administered by the NJDOT Airport Improvement Program.
Two other airports are receiving grants. Trenton-Mercer Airport in Mercer County is receiving nearly $1.4 million to support an airport security fence project, while Sky Manor Airport in Hunterdon County is receiving $147,250 for an aircraft apron
Among the 25 total grants are 13 Local Aid Infrastructure Fund grants totaling $2.75 million, eight Rail Freight Assistance Program grants for $6.6 million, and four State Airport Improvement Program grants totaling $2 million.
“The range of these grants illustrate how diverse modes of travel give shape to New Jersey’s robust transportation network,” said NJDOT Commissioner James Simpson. “These grants promote air, rail and vehicular transportation, each of which plays a role in driving our economy.”
