New Jersey Congressman Donald Payne, Jr. spent the afternoon of May 2 learning about critical infrastructure with executives from Conrail, Norfolk Southern and CSX.

Congressman Payne toured the Point No Point Bridge, which was built in 1901 and serves as a vital freight artery moving nearly 7,000 cargo containers a day connecting New York and north to Massashusetts and the west to Chicago.

The bridge replacement project will create 110 new union-effective jobs for the local New Jersey workforce.
