The federal Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act is poised to unlock an historic level of funding for a vast array of infrastructure projects. This program will feature discussions with representatives from the big four transportation agencies in the New York and New Jersey metropolitan area: Amtrak, the Metropolitan Transportation Authority, New Jersey Transit, and the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey.
Planning leaders from the agencies will share their perspectives on priority projects proposed for funding and describe how those projects will benefit the regional and local communities by delivering greater connectivity, more sustainable approaches, and equitable access.
