SENATE TRANSPORTATION COMMITTEE
SENATE, No. 2193
with committee amendments
STATE OF NEW JERSEY
DATED: DECEMBER 1, 1997
The Senate Transportation Committee favorably reports and with committee amendments Senate Bill No. 2193.
This amended bill would require the Commissioner of Transportation to allocate and transfer from a part or all of any item or items from funds authorized by the Legislature to be appropriated from the revenues and other funds of the New Jersey Transportation Trust Fund Authority for the FY 1998 transportation capital construction program to a new item the sum necessary for the repavement of lanes in both directions of Route 24, traversing Millburn Township, Essex County and the City of Summit, Union County, with noise-reducing open graded asphalt, beginning at the intersection of Route 24 and Morris Avenue and terminating at the intersection of Route 24 and John F. Kennedy Boulevard.
In addition to reducing noise, open graded asphalt increases skid resistance and reduces water spray, thereby creating safer driving conditions.
The amended bill requires that a contract for the repavement of Route 24 to be awarded within six months of the effective date of this act.
The committee amended the bill by making it applicable to the Fiscal Year 1998 transportation capital construction program rather than the 1997 FY program.
