New Jersey Congressman Donald Payne, Jr., spent the afternoon of May 2 learning about critical infrastructure with leaders from Conrail, Norfolk Southern, and CSX.

Congressman Payne toured the Point No Point Bridge, which was built in 1901 and serves as a vital freight artery moving almost 7,000 freight containers a day connecting to New York City and north to Massashusetts and west to Chicago.

The bridge replacement project will create 110 new prevailing wage union jobs for the local workforce of New Jersey.
