Some NJ road, rail projects placed on hold

TRENTON - Hundreds of road and rail projects resumed yesterday after legislators approved a $1.25 billion bond sale to keep the work funded through spring. But more than 100 projects in the early development stages remain on hold.

Transportation Commissioner James Simpson says the Christie administration is extending the moratorium on early phase projects "at least until the bond sale and refinancing plan is executed."

Last week, Simpson had ordered work stopped on all state-funded projects because the funding source, the Transportation Trust Fund, is nearly depleted.

AP wire services contributed to this report.
