New Jersey DOT's $3.6 billion capital program includes $1.4 billion for NJ Transit
The proposed program would be funded with $1.6 billion from the state transportation trust fund, $1.73 billion in federal funding and $239 million from other sources.
NJ Transit’s $1.4 billion capital program would include funding to rehabilitate bridges; replace track; upgrade signal and security systems; repair overhead power lines and electric substations; and improve rail stations and bus terminals. Dollars also would be set aside for expansion projects, including the Mass Transit Tunnel, Hudson Bergen Light Rail extension to Eighth Street in Bayonne, the Northern Branch, the Lackawanna Cutoff to Andover, and Passaic-Bergen rail project.
The entire proposed Fiscal Year 2010 Capital Program is available on NJDOT’s Web site.
