New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie says it's time to focus on badly needed improvements to the state's transportation system.
Christie on Wednesday said he's shifting his priority to fund state road and bridge improvements. His announcement comes one day after the governor canceled the country's biggest public works project.
Christie says New Jersey's infrastructure is rated by some as the worst in the country.
It's the closest Christie has come to validating what proponents of a $9 billion-plus rail tunnel connecting New Jersey to Manhattan claim was the Republican's primary motivation for killing the tunnel. They said Christie wanted to use the money to replenish the state's nearly broke Transportation Trust Fund.
At least $1.25 billion has been freed up by the tunnel's demise.
