NJ TRANSIT CEO Kevin Corbett joined Acting New Jersey Department of Transportation Commissioner and NJT Board Chair Francis K. O’Connor, Amtrak Chairman Tony Coscia, US Representatives Congressman Bill Pascrell, Jr. ,Rob Menendez , and Congresswoman Mikie Sherrill, Federal Railroad Administration Amit Bose, Federal Transit Administration (FTA) Region II Administrator, Michael Culotta, and Gateway Development Commission CEO Kris Kolluri to celebrate 50% completion of the new Portal North Bridge.

The two-track replacement bridge will replace the 114-year-old bridge with a modern, high-level fixed span that does not open or close, improving reliability and increasing performance.

The Portal North Bridge project is a critical component of the larger Gateway Program, which will eventually double rail capacity between Newark and New York.
