By Herald Staff

TRENTON – Cape May County will receive $3.3 million for use toward local infrastructure improvements from the New Jersey Department of Transportation (NJDOT).
The funds are apportioned based on population and road mileage in each county. Cape May County will make decisions about which projects receive the funding. The county is required to submit eligible projects for approval before December 1, 2022.
Transportation Commissioner Diane Gutierrez-Scaccetti announced the release of $161.25 million in Fiscal Year 2023 County Aid statewide. The program is funded through the New Jersey Transportation Trust Fund (TTF).
“The New Jersey Department of Transportation continues its efforts to support communities in delivering safe, efficient, and equitable transportation systems throughout the State.” NJDOT Commissioner Diane Gutierrez-Scaccetti stated in a release.
“County Aid provides millions of dollars for investment in local infrastructure, improving county roads and bridges, without burdening local property taxpayers,” she continued.
Projects may be improvements to public roads and bridges under county jurisdiction, or other transportation related work. 
The early announcement of dollar amounts is intended to create better planning. The advance information for counties is a requirement of recently passed legislation.
