New infrastructure bill could give NJ $12 billion

A recently passed House infrastructure bill includes about $2 million for Great Falls National Historical Park in Paterson. The money can be used to install new sidewalks, lighting, bike paths and better access for visitors. On the whole, New Jersey stands to get about $12 billion for highways and public transit from the INVEST in America Transportation and Water Infrastructure bill.

“…Our highways, our airports, our sewers underneath, not a sexy thing to talk about,” said U.S. Rep. Bill Pascrell (D-9). “But if they all collapse, you’ll know about it in your house.”

The bill awaits a vote in the U.S. Senate.
