Re: The new $480M Wittpenn Bridge construction is a year behind. Why? It’s complicated.

Is it more amazing that the construction of the Empire State Building took only a little over a year or projects like Wittpenn Bridge, Pulaski Skyway rehabilitation project, etc. take years and years? Hey Miss AOC, we really need MORE government. Yeah, right.

Actually, the foundation of the ESB took 7 years. Once they reached street level, it only took a year to finish off the rest of the building. But the idea that the ESB was constructed in 1 year is quite absurd. It is easy to skew facts.
These are not "new" routes, as we were building 50 years ago... They are replacement routes, being built around the existing routes, with the existing routes still open. You can still drive through here everyday. Rush hour traffic gets to work. If you look at the scope of what they are accomplishing with this bridge, it is quite mesmerizing.
Complaining is easy. Engineering is hard.

Re: JC Council to Vote on Canceling Two Abatement Deals for Non Compliance

Hello, I see construction has begun on the Bright/Varick project. Does anybody know what they are actually building? Are they moving forward with the micro unit project? I cannot find anything on the plans moving forward. Thank you

Curious about permitting process


I would like to add a laundry closet to my unit. This will require plumbing and electrical permits. I am just curious about the permitting process. Does JC turn building permits around for small jobs quickly? How about scheduling inspections? Would this whole thing take more than a month? Honestly, a handyman could bang the whole job out in 3 or 4 days lol.

Thank you for the info.

Re: Jersey City to make $94 million in water and sewer improvements

Most cities have separate sanitary and storm sewer systems. Jersey city (at least the downtown) does not. Both your toilet water and rain water run through the same lines. That's why when you walk by a sewer grate it reeks.

Is there any intent in JC's future to alter the sewer system so you have separate storm and sanitary sewers?
