MOORESTOWN RECEIVES FEDERAL AID, BEGINS WORK ON LENOLA TOWN CENTER STREETSCAPE IMPROVEMENT PROJECT

On Monday January 6, Moorestown Township received an executed federal aid agreement that will allow preliminary engineering work to begin on the Lenola Town Center Streetscape Improvement Project. Notice of eligibility for the original $971,000 funding award for project construction, obtained through a grant under the Transportation Alternatives Program co-administered by the NJ Department of Transportation and Delaware Valley Regional Planning Commission, was received in 2018. Subsequently, the Township was awarded an additional $366,744 in August 2019 through the Design Assistance Program for preliminary engineering, final design and construction engineering costs not covered under the original grant award. The Township was required to wait for an executed copy of the federal aid agreement in order to ensure that all funds expended at this phase of the project would be reimbursed by the new grant. Moorestown Mayor Nicole Gillespie signed a notice to proceed on January 7, 2020, authorizing the firm of McCormick Taylor to begin work on the project.

Mayor Gillespie also acknowledged the hard work of the Township Council, staff, professionals and citizen volunteers on this project, as well as assistance received from Senator Troy Singleton's office throughout the process.

The Lenola Town Center Streetscape Improvement Project will enhance the aesthetic and economic vitality of the Moorestown Lenola business district area. The Plan aims to improve and increase connectivity of the Lenola neighborhood town center through enhanced signage, new bike lanes, traffic calming strategies, shade trees, decorative lighting, benches, litter/recycling receptacles, a bus shelter, attractive and ADA-compliant sidewalks, and decorative crosswalks.
