Projects Honored w/Location:
“New Jersey is in an infrastructure ‘Renaissance’,” said Alliance for Action President Jerry Keenan. “The work honored today is responsible for nearly $5 billion in capital spending. The work touches every corner of the state, and combined they are responsible for tens of thousands of people going to work today – and for every day the rest of 2022 and beyond.”
The projects honored also recognized the efforts of more than 140 organizations making them a reality, including labor unions, contractors, designers, engineers, and others, as well as the project’s actual sponsors.
“The projects honored today are responsible for great numbers of employment among our trade members”, said Thomas Sullivan, president of the Bergen County Building and Construction Trades Council and vice chairman of the Bergen County Board of Commissioners.
