Story Highlights

Over the past four years, the South Jersey Transportation Authority and the New Jersey Turnpike Authority have paid $2.8 million and $32 million, respectively, for maintenance of state-owned roads.

The maintenance agreements with the SJTA and NJTA were developed in 2009 amid a state budget crisis. Prior to 2009, the state funded the maintenance itself.

The SJTA could not afford its $700,000 payment last year, leaving the agreement unrenewed when it expired in July 2011. This year, the SJTA agreed to pay $1.4 million for two years of maintenance.
