Letter from NJDOT's Commissioner Simpson
The letter above reads:
May 1, 2012
Dear Assemblyman Green:
Thank you for your letter on behalf of Council Member Adrian Mapp recommending that action be taken to relieve the City of Plainfield from the maintenance responsibiltiy for Route 28. I appreciate the opportunity to address your concerns.
Based on information taken from records dating back to 1927, the New Jersey Department of Transportation (NJDOT) did not take over jurisdiction of Route 28 in Plainfield. A meeting was held several years ago with representatives of Plainfield and the NJDOT, and it was determined that the NJDOT does not have jurisdiction over this section of roadway. Operationally, the NJDOT does not have a desire to assume responsibiltiy for this section of roadway.
I hope this information is helpful. Should you have any additional questions or concerns please feel free to contact Anthony J. Attanasio, Assistant Commissioner for Government and Community Relations,
