Jersey City, NJ —
Hudson County Executive Tom DeGise announced the launch of http://www.14thstviaductreplacement.com/
today, a website dedicated to the 30 month-long $46 million dollar 14th Street Viaduct Replacement Project. The new website, to be updated and maintained by the general contractor, will be available also as a link on www.hudsoncountynj.org
Those interested in following the project, especially members of the media, can check http://www.14thstviaductreplacement.com/
for information regarding the overall project and timely updates regarding construction and its impact on local traffic patterns. There is also information about the engineering and construction firms involved, photos and renderings of the structure, links to an interpretive program and cultural resources related to the viaduct's remarkable history.
"We're proud to see this enormous investment in our public infrastructure get underway," said County Executive DeGise. "With this online effort at outreach, we believe the project will be better understood by the public. Hopefully, this will help folks avoid traffic headaches and help us smooth the process of replacing this important local artery with the least amount of disruption possible."
"This project is a critical step in securing the future of Hoboken," said Freeholder Anthony Romano (D-5). "The new website will help us track the progress and understand the process of construction throughout the Viaduct Replacement. This is the kind of communication the public deserves. I hope our residents will take advantage of it to help them get though the inevitable hassles that are part of a huge undertaking like this."
The 14th Street Viaduct Replacement Project is slated to begin construction August 1.
