U.S. Senator Bob Menendez (D-N.J.) today announced $75 million in Public Transportation Emergency Relief Program grants to rebuild New Jersey Transit’s Peckman Bridge and Wood-Ridge Maintenance of Way (MOW) facility. The bridge and facility suffered extensive damage during Hurricane Ida in 2021, and its condition continues to be risk prone to other destructive weather events.
“I’m proud to have delivered this $75 million grant from the Department of Transportation that will be used to reconstruct NJ Transit’s Peckman Bridge in Cedar Grove and their maintenance facility in Clifton to continue improving public transportation for commuters in New Jersey,” said Sen. Menendez. “As the effects of climate change continue to bring disastrous weather events to New Jersey, having infrastructure that supports the safe transportation of residents and families is critical. Investments like this demonstrate how Congress continues to work to create safer, more sustainable infrastructure for generations to come.”
