We’re still waiting on a concrete proposal for a gravel walkway over the river, but we have an idea.
The New Jersey Department of Transportation announced Monday that it has awarded $5.5 million in grant funding for an “unfinished gravel gravel grid” along the Hudson River.
The project will run along the New Jersey side of the river and will have a concrete footing to help prevent erosion, according to the department.
The agency has not yet announced a price tag for the project, but it could be significant.
The department said it expects to start work by the end of the year, and that a $1.9 million grant would cover the construction of the gravel grid and an estimated $4 million in additional funding for maintenance.
The New Jersey Office of Environmental Protection has been working with the project’s developer to address environmental issues.
