Last year, under Gov. Chris Christie (R), Jersey City received $1,038,402 from the state DOT for miscellaneous street improvements.
Meanwhile, Hoboken Mayor Ravi Bhalla said on Twitter today that the money “will be invested directly into pedestrian safety initiatives, road repair, and other projects.”
In 2017, the Mile Square City netted $434,663 from the NJ DOT for “pedestrian crossing improvements.”
