Exec: GWB Lane Closings ‘Will Not End Well’

The director of bridges and tunnels for the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey says he knew beforehand that shutting local-access lanes to the George Washington Bridge would cause gridlock in Fort Lee.

Cedrick Fulton says he told his boss “this will not end well” before the lanes were closed in September.

Fulton is testifying before the Assembly Transportation Committee Monday.

The panel subpoenaed Fulton and two other authority officials to answer questions about the lane closures.

The special hearing follows the resignation Friday of Dave Wildstein, the agency official at the center of the controversy.

Democrats suspect a political motive. They claim the lanes were shut to punish Fort Lee’s Democratic mayor for not endorsing Christie’s re-election.

The governor has denied it.
