SUMMIT, NJ - The City of Summit is asking residents to call or e-mail Governor Chris Christie and other state elected officials by July 15, expressing their support for putting the Morris Avenue Bridge replacement project on a list of essential projects that will be completed with remaining Transportation Trust Fund funds.

“It is imperative that our elected officials hear that the Morris Avenue bridge replacement project needs to be included on the essential projects list,” said Summit Mayor Nora Radest. “I encourage each of you to call or e-mail the Governor, Assembly Speaker Prieto and Senate Majority Leader Sweeney today. We need to work together to help make this happen.”

On June 30, Christie issued Executive Order No. 210, which put the Morris Avenue project on a list on non-essential projects that are up for review; only projects paid for by federal funds and projects deemed "absolutely essential" will continue.
