TRENTON, NJ – Senate President Steve Sweeney will continue his statewide effort to bring attention to New Jersey’s infrastructure problems and to develop a plan to fund the state’s Transportation Trust Fund with a stop at the Park Avenue Bridge in Edison.
This event will take place tomorrow, Aug. 27, at 11 a.m. near the Park Avenue Bridge, just north of Olsen Avenue, in Edison.
The Park Avenue Bridge is one of the 6 percent of Middlesex County’s 543 bridges that are considered structurally deficient.
Sweeney represents the Third Legislative District, which includes portions of Gloucester and Cumberland counties and all of Salem County.
First elected to the New Jersey Senate in 2001, Sweeney has been reelected four times. He was chosen by the Democratic Majority to lead the Senate in the 214th Legislature in 2009, and took the oath as Senate President on Jan. 12, 2010.
