Responding to a new report that finds New Jersey spends way more on its roads per mile than any other state, without much to show for it, the state says keeping the roads safe and comfortable is a top priority and one that's made progress over the past few years.
A coalition made up of business, transportation, labor and consumer advocates has been created to address the soon-to-be bankrupt Transportation Trust Fund (TTF), which provides money for various road and bridge projects throughout the state.
Even if some of the money comes out of their own pockets, most Americans believe the federal government should invest more than it currently does on roads, bridges and mass transit, according to a new AAA survey.
A Senate panel on Thursday approved a bill to keep federal highway programs going for the next six years, but it remained unclear whether Congress would act in time to prevent a disruption in transportation aid to states this summer.
It's no secret that New Jersey is running out of money to pay for fixing roads, bridges and tunnels. How to generate revenue to replenish the Transportation Trust Fund has been a hot topic in Trenton, but nobody can seem to agree on a funding source.
The Obama administration sent a four-year, $302 billion transportation plan to Congress Tuesday, hoping to jump-start a national debate on how to repair and replace the nation's aging infrastructure while accommodating the needs of a growing population.
A New Jersey legislative committee that's planning to review the failures of NJ Transit during Superstorm Sandy is going to expand the session to review a number of other problems the agency has recently had.
The rough winter weather has slowed the Route 35 reconstruction project. Shore area officials are hoping it will be done in time for the summer, but many think that's unlikely considering the snow, ice and rain.
