NJDOT’s Fiscal Year 2019 project awards exceeded expectation and finished with strong numbers. Continuing on a trend to maintain its roadway assets, NJDOT has let and award more paving projects than last year and 2017. With the end of the fiscal year on June 30, NJDOT has awarded 120 projects with bid values of $947.71 million with asphalt tonnage of 1.712 million. That tonnage is the most since 2013.
Looking ahead to Fiscal Year 2020, NJDOT has projected 101 projects, which will include 23 paving projects, 5 pavement preservation projects, 36 bridge projects, and 37 other project types (which include pavement markings, sign structures, drainage, safety and operations and other infrastructure improvements). Many of the bridge and other projects will include asphalt pavement. The estimated value of these projects is between $693 million and $1.408 billion.
