NJ, Pa. lawmakers proposing bridge agency changes

CAMDEN, N.J. (AP) — Lawmakers from New Jersey and Pennsylvania are proposing changes to the Delaware River Port Authority, which runs four bridges connecting the two states in the Philadelphia area.

The plans are to be announced at a news conference Thursday morning.

At the behest of the governors of both state, the DRPA has already made major changes in the last several years, including ceasing to spend toll money on economic development projects unrelated to transportation.

Authorities such as the DRPA have received greater scrutiny since revelations that an official at the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey was involved in the politically motivated shutdown of lanes near the George Washington Bridge last year.
