Palisades Parkway to be Repaved

According to officials with the New Jersey Department of Transportation they are dispatching crews in late July or early August to begin repaving the Palisades Parkway. The Palisades Interstate Parkway Commission does not have the money to fix the roads, which haven’t seen much repair in past years, so according to Steve Schapiro, a spokesman for the New Jersey DOT, the agency will be paying the $11.2 million cost. The Parkway Commission has a budget of $7.7 million for 2014, built mostly on revenue from the New Jersey Legislature. Residents of Rockland County, as well as New Jersey, who use the Parkway to commute to New York City have long complained about the patch jobs completed over the years, and stated that they are looking forward to the repaving being done. The New York State DOT stated that they have no plans to repave the section of road in their state, which was last done in 2001. New Jersey officials stated that they will try to complete construction during the day and night hours, to avoid rush hour.
