Transportation Secretary Coming To New Jersey

TRENTON, N.J. (AP) — U.S. Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood is coming to New Jersey Friday as part of the federal recovery effort in the wake of Sandy.

LaHood will meet with officials to discuss state and local efforts to restore transportation.

Gov. Chris Christie on Thursday announced the federal government will be providing rail cars to help NJ Transit get train service up and running. The governor said 25 percent of the system’s rail cars were in yards that flooded.

LaHood’s schedule has not yet been released.
