Atlantic Ocean Hurricane Season is Here: June 1 thru November 30

While we hope for an uneventful 2020 Hurricane season, we know it is better to be prepared than just hope for the best.

The Emergency Relief (ER) Program Is a federally-funded program to aid in the repair of Federal-aid highways (all public roads not functionally classified as either local or rural minor collectors), which have suffered serious damage as a result of a natural disaster or catastrophic failure from an external cause, such as:

  • Hurricane
  • Earthquake
  • Tornado
  • Flood

Steps to Follow if an Emergency is Declared

  • Watch the Local Aid Emergency Relif Video
  • Take Multiple Photos & Caption Each: As soon as it is safe, document the disaster with time/date-stamped photos and descriptive captions.
  • Locate all ER Documents to Apply for Funds: Email sent annually every June to County Engineers with necessary information or located online:
  • Contact your Local District Office or the Local Aid Resource Center: Inspections will be scheduled with NJDOT, FHWA, and County representatives to assess the site.

How to Submit the Best Photos

  • Take multiple photos: Provide different angles; the more photos, the better. Please reference the Federal Highway Administration’s Detailed Damage Inspection Report (FHWA-1547 DDIR).
  • Caption each photo: Be detailed with your descriptions & include the date and time.
