Jersey Avenue Extension Over Mill Creek:
The US DOT TIGER (Transportation Investment
Generating Economic Recovery) Discretionary Grant Program 2012

This project consists of the extension of Jersey Avenue over Mill Creek connection into Liberty State Park to Jersey City neighborhoods, thereby opening up a much needed access into the park and the surrounding venues.  The extension of Jersey Avenue will also provide better emergency access into and out of the park and provide beautification of the unattractive features of the surrounding areas, such as an enhanced gateway toward the Statue of Liberty, Liberty State Park, and Ellis Island.  These three venues are highly visited international tourist destinations.  The TIGER Discretionary Grant will give the City of Jersey City its only opportunity to see this necessary extension become a reality.
