MORRIS COUNTY — Senator Anthony M. Bucco announced that $1.6 million would be allocated toward improving access to transit facilities and public transportation throughout Morris County.

“I am extremely pleased that over $1.6 million is being invested in Morris County to help rebuild our transit infrastructure. This funding is so important to New Jersey families,” said Bucco (R-25). “These grants represent a return on taxpayers’ investment and will help make the train stations and roadways of Netcong, Morristown, and Dover safer and more enjoyable for residents and commuters alike.”

The $1.68 million in grants are aimed at enhancing areas around transit facilities and public transportation throughout Morris County.

The grants are divided into Transit Villages, Safe Streets, and Bikeways. Netcong will receive $800,000 for improvements to Main Street through the Transit Village Program; Morristown will receive $86,000 for Phase II of their train station improvements throughout that same program, and Dover will receive $800,000 in Safe Streets funding for traffic signal improvements on Blackwell Street.
