The Transportation Capital Program for FY 2025 describes the planned capital investments for the State fiscal year starting July 1, 2024. It represents the annual element of the New Jersey Department of Transportation’s and NJ Transit’s federal Statewide Transportation Improvement Program (STIP).

Focusing on the Department’s and Transit's Core Mission—safety, infrastructure preservation, mass transit, mobility and congestion relief, and operations and maintenance—this Capital Program outlines projects and programs that rebuild the State’s bridges and roads, provide mass transit services, and reduce congestion by deploying Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) technology.

This Capital Program reflects the need to prioritize spending by carefully evaluating transportation needs and targeting limited resources toward safety, fix-it-first and state-of-good- repair initiatives.


The FY 2025 Transportation Capital Program totals $4.859 billion and is funded primarily by the State Transportation Trust Fund (TTF), federal, and third-party resources. The NJDOT total is $3.180 billion and the NJ Transit total is $1.679 billion.

State, or TTF funds, are programmed at $2.000 billion.

Federal Funds
