The Commissioner's Report


NJDOT's 'Fix It First' projects address congestion and safety

Reducing congestion and improving safety on all of the state's roads are the foremost transportation priorities of the McGreevey Administration.

To accomplish this in a way that meaningfully addresses the causes of congestion, improves driving conditions and continues to enhance economic well-being for New Jersey residents, the New Jersey Department of Transportation will focus its limited resources on maintaining and fixing an aging transportation infrastructure.

Within the last few weeks, Commissioner Fox announced projects that specifically address congestion relief and safety. They include:
  • Route 71 pedestrian tunnel, West Long Branch.

    This $4 million federally funded project separates pedestrian and vehicular traffic and allows pedestrians to safely cross Route 71 on the campus of Monmouth University.

  • Route 46 and Riverview Drive, Totowa.

    NJDOT, at the urging of Congressman Bill Pascrell, Jr., has accelerated the work schedule on this $18 million congestion relief project by six months. The Riverview Drive bridge over Route 46 is being widened to improve traffic flow at a heavily traveled interchange.

  • Route 18 and Tices Lane, East Brunswick.

    $3 million has been committed to East Brunswick to improve a chronically congestion part of Route 18 travelled by 58,000 vehicles daily.
