December 2020

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.
