[ARCHIVED] Portal Bridge Replacement Project Progress

On Monday, NJ Transit’s Board of Directors approved a project development agreement with Amtrak, moving the Portal Bridge replacement project one step closer to a start. The project, which is expected to cost $1.8 billion, is now scheduled to begin in 2021 either in the late Spring or early Summer.

As previously reported, in May, the Federal Railroad Administration award NJ Transit and Amtrak $91.5 million for the project. And in June, the Federal Transit Administration qualified the project for an additional $766.5 million. In addition, the State of New Jersey has committed to spend $600 million for the local share, which will be funded through the Transportation Trust Fund.
