Efficiently moving people and goods around and through New Jersey — with its 8.9 million residents and its 7,354 square miles of land — is the most pressing issue facing the state.
On that, just about everyone can agree. But when you start talking about priorities and funding, questions abound.
On February 19, NJ Spotlight will gather the region’s leading experts and policy makers to discuss these questions. We'll first examine what the future of transportation in New Jersey should look like: What should our priorities be? How do you invest locally and regionally? How do the many tunnels and bridges in our state figure into the picture? What do demographic trends tell us about the future of our mass-transit system?
Then we'll tackle the big question: How do we pay for it all?
Don't miss this important discussion on the future of transportation in New Jersey, an issue that has enormous implications for every individual and business in the region.
Featuring a keynote address by Thomas K. Wright, President, Regional Plan Association.
