NJ Lawmaker Pushes for $60,000 Study of Road Construction Costs, A “Casualty” of Transportation Impasse

NJ.com reports that State Senator Raymond Lesniak (D-Union) is calling on Governor Chris Christie to restore $60,000 in funding for a Rutgers University study on how to “drive down New Jersey’s road reconstruction costs, which have been estimated to be more than $200,000 a mile.” That study was a casualty of Governor Christie’s order stopping work on projects funded by the Transportation Trust Fund, the report adds.
