NJ Congressional Delegation Requests Rutgers’ Transportation Center Be Designated as Federal Research Center

Washington, DC, September 14, 2017 — Jonathan D. Salant reports in The Star-Ledger that the entire 14-member New Jersey congressional delegation has lined up behind a request to designate Rutgers University’s transportation center as a federal research center.

The designation would bring as much as $14 million in federal funds over five years for the Center for Advanced Infrastructure and Transportation and its partners.

The Rutgers center focuses on bridge safety, highway construction and planning, and transportation research and technology.

Rutgers’ team includes several other colleges in the Northeast and Puerto Rico, including Princeton University, Rowan University and New Jersey Institute of Technology.

“Joining forces with these research institutions will enhance Rutgers’ ability to respond to our mounting infrastructure challenges,” the lawmakers said in a letter to Kevin Womack, director of the U.S. Department of Transportation’s Office of Research, Development and Technology.

“These investments would support the consortium’s mission of advancing safer, longer-lasting infrastructure and helping to confront the nation’s state of good repair backlog.”

Sens. Cory Booker and Robert Menendez, D-N.J., led the delegation letter, which also garnered the signatures of all 12 House members from the state.

Last week, Booker and other members of the state’s congressional delegation joined their New York counterparts at the White House to discuss federal funding for the Gateway Tunnel project.
