LODI, N.J. — The roads are looking a lot less bumpy in Lodi, thanks to a $221,848 grant from the Bergen County Division of Community Development.
County Executive Jim Tedesco presented the grant to Mayor Emil Carafa, which will support an upcoming road project to improve Terrace Avenue between South Main Street and Woodside Avenue.
“On behalf of the Division of Community Development, I’m pleased to present this check today as a symbol of Bergen County’s commitment to infrastructure investment,” Tedesco said.
“Well-maintained roads, bridges, and public transportation are critically important to our quality of life across Bergen County.”
This section of road, which connects the community to the Hilltop Elementary School and the neighboring athletic field, has been subject to temporary repairs and short-term fixes to address extensive potholes and cracking.
The project includes repaving the road and ensuring compliance with current ADA regulations.
“We are thankful for the grant money and support from Community Development,” Carafa said.
“These funds help Lodi keep our sidewalks, streets, and parks safe for our residents and all those who visit our community.”
