Fixing Our Crumbling Roads, Bridges, Tunnels, and Transit


Make text smaller Make text larger





Good infrastructure is at the core of our economy’s success. Nowhere is that more true than in New Jersey, where we are second in the nation, percentage-wise, of commuters who rely on public transit.

Yet, over the last year, NJ Transit has had more train breakdowns than any other commuter railroad in America.

We’ve seen projects like the critical Gateway Project suffer bureaucratic barriers, a lack of investment, or delays.

If the Hudson River tunnels fail in the next few years and have to come offline, the U.S. economy would lose $100 million per day.

Thank you to Senator Paul Sarlo, Assemblymembers Chris Tully and Lisa Swain, Joseph M. Sanzari Inc. President & CEO Joe Sanzari, Bergen County BCTC President Rick Sabato, Bergen County CLC President Mike Schneider, and leaders from the Operating Engineers, Utility and Transportation Contractors, United Brotherhood of Carpenters, IBEW, United Association of Pipefitters, Regional Plan Association, Coach USA, Tilcon, New Prince Concrete Construction, HC Constructors Inc., and more for joining me at the IBEW Local 164 Hall in Paramus to discuss working together to invest in our state.

U.S. Congressman Josh Gotteimer

New Jersey's 5th District, representing West Milford
