Bayonne Receives a $763,115 State Grant for Road Repairs (See the List)

Mayor Jimmy Davis and Assemblyman Nicholas Chiaravalloti (D-Hudson) are proud to announce that the New Jersey Department of Transportation Municipal Aid Program will be giving Bayonne a $763,115 grant for road repairs. This amount represents an increase of over $350,000 from the previous year’s funding.

Bayonne Mayor Jimmy Davis stated, “This grant funding allows us to repave multiple roads in Bayonne.  This much-needed increased funding allows us to begin implementing our paving plan. We’ve fixed 2,812 potholes in the past few weeks. However, repaving projects are really the long-term solution.”

“Under Chris Christie, there was less money for local communities to repave streets. Now that the Transportation Trust Fund has resources, I hope to see more paving projects throughout Bayonne.  This grant will help Bayonne to improve the quality of our municipal roads,” said Chiaravalloti (D-Hudson).

The Municipal Aid Program is administered as part of the renewed Transportation Trust Fund, which is partially funded by the gas tax issued in 2017.

The following eight roads in Bayonne are to be paved with new funding.  The first one listed (Avenue B) will be covered by funds from the federal Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) and the Bayonne Urban Enterprise Zone (UEZ).  The other seven will be improved by the new grant from the New Jersey Department of Transportation (NJDOT).

  1. Avenue B from West 48th to West 51st St.
  2. Broadway from 10th Street to 14th
  3. 15th from Avenue C to Avenue E
  4. West 23rd from Avenue A to Kennedy Blvd.
  5. East 42nd from Broadway to Avenue E
  6. George St. from Lexington Avenue to Hobart Avenue
  7. Public Lane from West 16th to Parkside Lane
  8. Trask Avenue from West 3rd to West 4th St.

  1. Broadway from 3rd Street to 5th Street
  2. LaTourette Court from Broadway to the end of the street
