Fixing Our Crumbling Roads, Bridges, Tunnels, and Transit

Aug 23 2018 | 11:09 AM

    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.
