A powerful driver of the state and region’s economic prosperity, the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey recently approved a $32-billion, 10-year capital plan. With a commitment to the Gateway project, significant enhancements to the region’s airports and the development of a new bus terminal – among other projects – the investment framework features initiatives that will shape the region’s competitive landscape for generations.
Of course, the process by which the Port Authority arrived at the final version highlighted the critical, historical balance struck between the two states, a dynamic that has attracted increased attention as of late.
Joining New Start New Jersey for a discussion of the Port Authority’s capital plan is one of the state and region’s foremost transportation experts, Martin Robins, Director Emeritus of the Alan M. Voorhees Transportation Center at Rutgers University.
