Shore area trail projects are being awarded funding from nearly $1-point-3 million dollars in Federal Highway Administration grants. State Environmental Protection Department (DEP) Commissioner Bob Martin says nearly $50, 000 dollars will be allocated to three projects in Ocean County. They include Phase one of a Municipal Trails Program in Ocean Township, Grading and a Multi-use Trail System at Double Trouble State Park in Berkeley Township and Expanding Trail Opportunities at The Forest Resource Education Center in Jackson Township.

Martin also says The Doctor’s Creek Trail Loop Project in Monmouth County will be getting nearly $23,000 and The Relocation of the Batona Trail in Burlington County’s Franklin Parker Preserve will getting nearly $25,000.

The funding is part of the Federal Highway Administration’s 2011 Recreational Trails Program that will allocate funds to 49 trail projects in New Jersey this year.

The DEP is now accepting applications for the 2012 Trails Funding. However, recipients are required to provide a 20% matching share for each project. Officials say the funding helps to develop, maintain, improve and operate trails through out New Jersey. The deadline to apply is February 15th, 2012.
