Joe Biden Tours New Jersey Damage

Focuses on restoring transportation infrastructure


Vice President Joe Biden surveyed hurricane damage in Hoboken Sunday, specifically in and around the PATH station and Hoboken Terminal. Biden was accompanied at a press conference that followed by Congressman Albio Sires, Senator Bob Menedez, Senator Frank Lautenberg, Mayor Dawn Zimmer, and Lieutenant Governor Kim Guadagno. Vice President Biden arrived in Hoboken after an aerial look at the ravaged shoreline by helicopter, and a stop in Seaside Heights, NJ.

"The devastation is real," Biden said.

The vice president made it clear at the press conference that his focus is not only to restore the transportation infrastructure, but also make it much more resilient for the future. The PATH station is still down, without a projected date to open.
