Port Authority Police Union Wades Into GWB Lane Closure Tiff

New Jersey lawmakers are angry that local officials weren’t notified in advance, and they’ve subpoenaed Port Authority officials to give their side. Some legislators claim the chaos was retaliation by Gov. Chris Christie against Fort Lee’s mayor, a claim Christie denies.

At Wednesday’s board meeting, police union head Paul Nunziato said the Port Authority routinely changes traffic patterns without notification. He said the incident was part of an ongoing power struggle over the Port Authority by New Jersey and New York, whom he likened to the fictional Sharks and Jets from the musical “West Side Story.”
