WOODBINE — Mayor William Pikolycky announced the borough has made two applications to the New Jersey Department of Transportation for grant funding under its Municipal Aid, Program, totaling over $620,000.

The first application, in the amount of $236,437.50, is for the reconstruction of DeHirsch Avenue from Monroe Avenue to Heilprin Avenue and continues previously DoT funded work on DeHirsch Avenue.

The second application, in the amount of $384,343.75, is for additional phases of road reconstruction of Sumner Avenue between Heilprin Avenue and Tyler Road, including the installation of stormwater infrastructure to correct recurring flooding problems.

This project is a continuation of two recently DoT funded projects. If approved, this application will complete the work on Sumner, providing a fully reconstructed road between Tyler and Heilprin. These improvements complement the work being performed by the county on Webster.

“These projects continue improving upon our existing infrastructure, adding traffic calming for our pedestrian and biking community as well as enhancing the health, safety and welfare of all those who use these roads,” Pikolycky said.
