The state Department of Transportation on Thursday announced 41 Local Bridge Fund grants totaling $47.3 million to help counties maintain local bridges.

Several local towns were awarded the grants.

Atlantic County will receive more than $2.3 million to replace the the Lakes Creek Bridge in Egg Harbor Township; Cape May County will receive $2.9 million for bridges in Stone Harbor and Lower Township; and Cumberland County will receive $1.3 million for bridges in Upper Deerfield Township and Bridgeton.
