The New Jersey Transit Board recently approved a $1.5 billion contract to replace the 110-year-old rail bridge Portal North Bridge. Given the American Society of Civil Engineers’ recent report that 7.5% of United States bridges are structurally deficient and that the nation’s backlog of bridge repairs requires an estimated $125 billion, do you believe bridge replacement, rather than repair, is a more time- and cost-efficient method of solving the infrastructure problem?
