Some Comments Sent to NJTPA
(North Jersey Transportation Planning Authority), 2/15/99

* * *
Good news (2/22/99): TIP (Transportation Improvement Program) FY 1998-2002 description of Bergen Arches needs assessment/ development study has been revised to consider "improved east-west transit" as well as "vehicular access" to the Hudson County Waterfront. Thanks to all for their letters to the NJTPA! We still have plenty of work cut out for us!
