Menendez, Booker Announce $4.8M to Port Authority for Ongoing Sandy Recovery


WASHINGTON, DC – U.S. Senators Bob Menendez and Cory Booker today announced the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey will receive $4.796 million in Sandy recovery funding from the Federal Emergency Management Agency to replace seven mooring cells damaged during the Superstorm, covering 90% of the overall project cost.

“The strength of New Jersey’s economy depends in large measure on the strength and stability of our port terminals,” said Sen. Menendez. “Sandy taught us that we must rebuild our infrastructure to withstand future disasters and this critical federal funding will help ensure the Garden State recovers from Sandy, stronger and better than before the storm."

“By investing in our critical port terminals, these funds will allow New Jersey to continue its path to full recovery from the damage of Superstorm Sandy while keeping our economy moving,” said Sen. Booker. “We will continue to fight for resources that enable us to make the proactive, long term investments that are needed to improve the resiliency of our state’s infrastructure.”
