Council Member Joseph Borelli (R – South Shore) has received a response to his letter, signed and supported by Council Member Rose, Minority Leader Matteo, Borough President Oddo, Assembly Members Castorina, Malliotakis, Titone, and Cusick, Congress Member Dan Donovan, and State Senator Andrew Lanza, requesting that an official timeline be provided by the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey (PANYNJ) for the construction of a new bridge to replace the existing Outerbridge Crossing.


Council Member Joseph C. Borelli (R-South Shore) is calling on the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey to change the lane configuration to add an additional lane in the direction of peak traffic on the Outerbridge Crossing to accommodate high-volume traffic to and from New Jersey during times of high-demand. Council Member Borelli suggests removing the median and replacing it with a moveable barrier which may be deployed to provide three lanes westbound on Friday PM peak hours, and three lanes eastbound Saturday and Sunday PM.
