EDISON - After derailing the Trans-Hudson Rail tunnel project, Gov. Christ Christie (R-NJ) says he wants to use that money to rebuild the state's roads and highways.

According to the governor, the Garden State has the worst infrastructure in the nation. He says he wants to change that by using the nearly $6 billion the state planned to commit to the ARC tunnel and replenish its transportation fund.

Many residents say they would like to see the money used on their roadways.

Sen. Frank Lautenberg (D-NJ) has called for an investigation into why the project was killed.

The Department of Transportation had no comment and offered no specifics on which roads or projects Christie wants to improve.
