The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey on Tuesday approved a $7.2 billion budget that holds the line on tolls and will eliminate 200 jobs through attrition next year.
Commissioners approved a $98.1 million project to rehabilitate the helix leading to the Lincoln Tunnel. Plans call for reinforcing and resurfacing the seven-lane roadway beginning next fall. The work is expected to end by 2015.
Lane closures are expected.
The budget also calls for spending $247 million for new PATH rail cars and a signal system.
Some $595 million that was earmarked for the rail tunnel project that was scuttled by Gov. Chris Christie remains unspent.
