HUNTERDON COUNTY, NJ – The Hunterdon County Department of Public Works and Engineering (DPW) has issued its 2020 capital projects annual report, featuring before and after photos which graphically depict the extensive infrastructure work accomplished by the DPW and provides details on how County road and bridge dollars are expended, Commissioner Zachary T. Rich reported at the May 4 meeting.

Commissioner Rich, the Board’s liaison for the Department, said, “The 2020 annual report is an impressive document, replete with before and after photographs that highlight an equally impressive body of work which, as the County Engineer has pointed out, was successfully accomplished last year despite the pandemic being at its peak during construction season.”

The DPW Annual Report provides details on road reconstructions, safety & drainage improvements, road surface treatments, bridge reconstruction rehabilitations and replacement projects, bridge painting and a substantial number of other projects which greatly benefit all who travel the roads and bridges throughout Hunterdon County

“Expenditures for infrastructure work on the county’s over 245 miles of roadways and over 2100 bridges and culverts are a major part of the county capital budget every year, funded by grants or county tax dollars,” Rich said.

“The report details the nature of the project, who the contractor was, and the total cost. I congratulate County Engineer Tom Mathews and the team not only for the exceptional job done on the county’s roads and bridges last year, but also for producing a document that is very forthright in letting the public know where tax dollars are going,” Rich said.
