North Jersey Projects Back on Track?

After unanimously voting down NJ Transit's 2001 capital programs list two weeks ago, NJTPA accepted a new project plan from the agency last Monday that now includes $10 million per year towards new rail project. The new plan, however, still represents a reduction in funding for new rail starts. NJTPA's five-year Transportation Improvement Plan (TIP) earmarks $40 million per year for beginning work on some of a handful of contemplated projects like a Union County light rail line, the Middlesex-Ocean-Monmouth line, and the restoration of passenger service to the West Trenton and West Shore lines. Earlier versions of the NJ Transit program also reflected this level of commitment.
