While the public can now view future toll projection data on New Jersey roadways on the state’s Department of Treasury web site, Republican lawmakers say Gov. Jon Corzine needs to release even more information related to the governor’s debt restructuring plan. The data can be accessed at www.state.nj.us/treasury/index.shtml.
The governor’s administration used the long-term traffic and toll revenue figures to evaluate how much additional revenue the state could generate from its roadways. Steer Davies and Gleave Ltd., a British transportation consulting firm, calculated future toll revenue and traffic patterns on the New Jersey Turnpike, the Garden State Parkway, the Atlantic City Expressway, and Route 440, which connects Staten Island to the Turnpike and the Parkway.
