Congressman Frank Pallone, Jr. announced that the US Department of Transportation has awarded $10 million to the NJDOT.
The money is earmarked for highway, road and sign repair in the wake of Hurricane Sandy.
The funds became available as a result of the formal emergency declaration.
"Superstorm Sandy wreaked havoc on our roads throughout the state, including many that pass through the Sixth District," said Pallone. "I thank the Department of Transportation for this funding that will help us move forward in our recovery from Sandy and repair our transportation infrastructure so it is safe for our drivers."
Mostly cloudy skies tonight with patchy drizzle/fog for some overnight.
Another mild day tomorrow. Highs in the low 60s.
Unsettled weather arrives Thursday night & Friday with our next cold front. With the blast of cold air that follows, we'll probably have a dry day on Saturday, and the chance of a Sunday wintry mix into the afternoon and evening. Stay tuned!
