Some towns weighing whether to defy road construction ban
As the state shut down of road projects continues due to funding issues with the Transportation Trust Fund, municipal officials are deciding whether to finish construction projects or gamble on waiting for a legislative solution. The projects of most concern are the ones on local streets near schools which officials had hoped would be complete before kids headed back to the classroom. Officials in at least 10 percent of the states 566 municipalities are facing that quandary, said Joseph Tempesta Jr., Mayor of West Caldwell and president of the New Jersey League of Municipalities.
