(Trenton) - The New Jersey Department of Transportation (NJDOT) is proposing to readopt with amendments, N.J.A.C. 16:43, Junkyards Adjacent to the Interstate and National Highways.

The chapter ensures New Jersey compliance with the junkyard control provisions of the Federal Highway Beautification Act of 1965, codified at 23 U.S.C. § 136, and the provisions of 23 C.F.R. § 751, Junkyard Control and Acquisition.
The proposed rule appears in the July 6, 2010 issue of the New Jersey Register. The public has until September 4, 2010 to comment on the proposal.
