Port Authority Still Mum on Mystery GWB Closures

JERSEY CITY, N.J. (AP) -

New Jersey lawmakers are asking the Port Authority to explain unannounced lane closures at the George Washington Bridge in September that caused massive traffic tie-ups.

Reports said the closures were part of a traffic study. But officials have refused to give details on the alleged study or who ordered it. PA executive director Patrick Foye said Wednesday that an investigation is ongoing.
