The $183 million renovation of the George Washington Bridge bus terminal in Upper Manhattan, which began eight years ago, will not be completed by its December 2016 target, according to developers. Lawmakers and locals are stunned by the problematic delay that affects 5 million annual riders of NJ Transit buses and other carriers, as well as the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey’s apparent lack of forthrightness. “It has tremendous impact on the thousands coming in and out every day. It’s not minor. It’s major,” Chair of Community Board 12 Shah A. Ally told Metro. “We would have liked to see more diligence on the Port Authority. More troubling is the lack of information provided about the delays… [it] puts a bad taste in our mouths. They made an enemy of the project.”
