Review of NJ Transit Sandy performance unfinished

11-28-13

NEWARK, N.J. (AP) — The anniversary of Superstorm Sandy has come and gone, and a review of how New Jersey’s transportation agency responded to the storm has yet to be released.

New Jersey Transit officials said last December that a review was to be conducted by an arm of Texas A&M’s engineering department that’s funded by the federal Department of Homeland Security. It was to be completed by last spring.

An NJ Transit spokeswoman says the report is being finalized and should be done in a few weeks. She didn’t say what has delayed its release.

Sandy caused more than $400 million in damage to NJ Transit’s rolling stock and infrastructure. The agency was criticized for not moving equipment from yards in Hoboken and Kearny that suffered severe flooding.
