Public Information Center
A Public Information Center for the Route 3 at Passaic River Crossing Project was held on September 19, 2001 at the Rutherford Municipal Building.
The purpose of the meeting was to provide the interested Public and Officials with the results of the Project Technical Environmental Studies. These studies included Reports on topics including Socio-economic, Land Use, Wetlands, Ecology, Hazardous Materials, Noise and Air Quality impacts. Archaeological and Historical Architectural investigations in compliance with the 1966 National Historic Preservation Act, Section 106, were also performed and the results presented.
Over 100 members of the public attended the meeting, together with Local Officials. At the end of the presentation, attendees were given the opportunity to ask questions on the environmental presentation or other issues, and were asked to fill out questionnaires, in order to present their concerns.
