August 1, 2022 | abc7ny.com
A long-delayed project to replace a heavily traveled 110-year-old rail bridge over the Hackensack River is finally moving forward.
A groundbreaking ceremony was held Monday morning for the Portal North Bridge, which will play a key role in the broader Gateway Program that will eventually double rail capacity between New Jersey and New York.
NJ SEED: A long-needed project that will take four years to build and create thousands of jobs finally began with a ground-breaking ceremony on Monday. Great news and congratulations to all involved. Now let’s bring it to completion in less than the projected time and underbudget. If that’s a dream, at least work has begun.
