Officials from New York and New Jersey say $50 million will be spent to clean up salt residue left by Superstorm Sandy inside PATH train tunnels.

A year after Sandy hit the Northeast, the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey on Wednesday authorized the spending as part of continuing cleanup efforts.

The corrosive salt will be removed from cables, tracks and other equipment replaced.

Millions of gallons of water flooded the PATH commuter system that links Manhattan with New Jersey. The agency’s board of commissioners approved the funding at its monthly meeting.

Up to 90 percent of the cost is expected to be reimbursed from $1.3 billion in recovery funding awarded to PATH by the Federal Transit Administration. Work will start in November on weekends and evenings.
