Sen. Sacco comments on the halt of the ARC Tunnel

NORTH BERGEN AND BEYOND – North Bergen Mayor and state Sen. Nicholas Sacco (D-Hudson) says he’s extremely disappointed that Gov. Christopher Christie has ended construction on the ARC Tunnel project which runs through North Bergen.
“We need to grow New Jersey’s economy and create jobs, and infrastructure improvements like the ARC Tunnel project are a significant part of those efforts,” he said. “Instead, the governor is throwing this project and the largest federal grant ever received by any state away. This is a short-sighted decision and it will cost us both the federal funds and the urgently needed transportation investments that are a vital part of our state’s future.” – Tricia Tirella
