New Jersey Gets Nearly $1.5B For Transit Repairs

New Jersey Transit and the Port Authority are getting nearly $1.5 billion to make repairs from Superstorm Sandy and to shield themselves from future storms.

Most of the federal transportation dollars, nearly $1.3 billion, will go to NJ Transit to fund such projects as a new electrical grid that can keep trains moving during major power outages.

The Port Authority will receive funds to, among other things, construct a sea wall near the PATH maintenance facility in Harrison and to shield the rail complex at the Penn-Moynihan Station.

The funding also includes nearly $85 million for mitigation work at the World Trade Center site.
