Thousands of commuters are dreading the Pulaski Skyway project that could shut down lanes for up to four years. One local assemblyman is calling for more discussion and better alternatives.
The much needed project to rehab one of the main arterial roads in the region has raised many concerns among residents and business owners in Hudson County. State Assemblyman Ruben Ramos, of the 33rd district, is reaching out to the transportation committee and leaders of the local municipalities that will be affected by the project, in an effort to address the issues. Ramos says there needs to be more discussion and preparation before the project begins.
“In terms of the impact on the region and on those local roads in Essex County, in Hudson County, really needs to be looked at and coordinated a little bit better and that’s what we want to have these hearings for, to see that there’s better planning and coordination between all these agencies.”
Ramos says he will be hammering out the details of the hearings by next week.
