    The Statewide amendment increases National Highway Performance Program (NHPP) funding for Engineering/Construction (EC) in federal fiscal year (FFY) 2017 by $59M to $81M and Surface Transportation Program (STP) funding for EC in FFY 2017 by $12M to $27M.

This project is being funded with federal resources from unexpended money from NJTPA (MPO for 13 northern counties), thus maintaining fiscal constraint.
