Murphy Thanks Trump, Feds for Portal North Bridge Funding Authorization
Governor Murphy released the following statement on the authorization of the Portal North Bridge funding:
“The Federal Transit Administration has committed to authorizing entry into the engineering phase and accelerating federal funding in the amount of $766.5 million for the Portal North Bridge, a huge win for New Jersey, the region, and the national economy. Since taking office, one of my top priorities has been securing funding for critical infrastructure projects like these that will restore NJ TRANSIT to prominence, and I am honored to have been able to make the case for Portal North directly to President Trump. I thank the President and his Administration for committing to this project and helping us usher in a new era of safe, modern, and reliable infrastructure for our region.”
Just days ago, Murphy and Trump dined together in Bedminster, after which the President tweeted that the funding would move forward.
