NJ DOT is planning to build a retaining wall to guard against falling rocks along Interstate 80 through Delaware Water Gap. This will forever change the viewshed and beauty of the area and have severe impacts on local economies and communities, not to mention traffic flow, tourism and the potential impact on wildlife. Please join BEC in writing to federal and state transportation officials to appeal for more research into the impact of this project.

Opinions and concerns may be sent to:  Nicole R. Nason, Administrator of the Federal Highway Administration, which is providing the funding for the project; and DOT Commissioner Diane Guttierrez-Scaccetti.
