Mayor Janice S. Mironov announced that East Windsor Township has been awarded a $600,361 grant from the New Jersey Department of Transportation Fiscal Year 2020 Municipal Aid Program for improvements to Exeter Road and adjoining streets, including Cornwall Drive, Berkshire Drive, Stanford Court, and Surrey Lane.
The $600,361 state grant includes the milling and resurfacing of Exeter Road and surrounding roadways, including Cornwall Drive, Berkshire Drive, Stanford Court, and Surrey Lane, as well as other associated improvements to concrete curbing and aprons, handicap ramps and drainage. The project focuses on a neighborhood of local older streets providing frequent homeowner access and use.
Mayor Mironov stated, “We are very appreciative to receive this state grant funding to support our local efforts to improve important roadways in East Windsor. These residential roads are in extremely deteriorated condition and are very much in need of repairs and improvements. These state grant funds are an important resource in our efforts to undertake needed local roadway improvements for our residents in East Windsor, for which the Township would otherwise have to devote local tax dollars to perform these roadway improvements.”
In previous years, East Windsor obtained a $393,575 grant for Dutch Neck Road and Morrison Avenue, a $410,000 grant for Old Cranbury Road in 2018, a $391,000 grant for Oak Creek Road in 2018, $335,000 grant in 2017 for Brooktree Road and Wiltshire Drive, $260,000 in 2016 for Probasco Road, $300,000 in 2015 for improvements to Dorchester Drive from Dutch Neck Road to the West Windsor border, and $250,000 in 2014 for Hickory Corner Road from Dutch Neck Road to Dorchester Drive.
