Gov. Jon Corzine yesterday announced a $305 million road-widening initiative to help relieve congestion in northeastern New Jersey, one program within the state’s forthcoming 10-year transportation capital program.

The Department of Transportation will release the 10-year plan this spring. The widening program follows Corzine’s earlier announcement last week to raise tolls by as much as 50% and implement new tolls beginning in 2010 to back a potential $37.6 billion bond deal.
