Replace the Portal Bridge!

$30 of $920.0M goal

The Portal Bridge is 108 years old and every failure impacts all of New Jersey Transit rail when it fails.

New Jersey Transit, Ex-Governor Chris Christie, Current Governor Philip D. Murphy, Senator Robert Menendez, and Senator Cory Booker have done nothing to solve this problem.

We, the residents, commuters, and visitors of New Jersey,  are taking matters into our own hands.  We will no longer stand idly by and continue to suffer substandard public transportation. 

Our first initiative, is the replacement of the Portal Bridge! 

I know! A spinning bridge! So cool!!

Right... Sorry.  Anyway, and for some reason, and this is just absolutely astounding, Amtrak didn't even have a design ready! So, we are, just now, in the design phase of this thing!  

Long story short (too late!) the only way it is going to happen is if we take care of it our selves.

We've already come up with $600 Million already approved in bond financing in June of 2018, will only require $920,000,000!

Drop in the bucket, right?  Also, not to put too fine a point on it, if we come up with it and deliver in one big chunk, they kinda have to account for it exceptionally well, right?  Yeah, I added 20 Million in oversight funding , but we are going to totally chew through that in no time, when this goes massively over budget. 

Thanks for reading, sharing, caring, commuting, and of course, donating.

Together, we the people can own 50% of this bridge and start to reclaim our travel.

Wow! We are on a roll now! We have raised $20.00!

We here in the #NJTransit Corrections Center are really proud (and frankly a bit surprised) to have reached this milestone!

Some quick back of the napkin math says we'll have this funded at this rate in just 503,764 and a half years! Or "just ahead of when Amtrak would get it done"!

We are on the move!
