Critics slam plan to protect NJ Transit trains during floods

NJ Transit voted today to spend $185 million on property in Middlesex County where it can safely store its trains during major storms.

During Hurricane Sandy, 300 train cars were ruined by flooding at the agency's Middlesex Maintenance Complex, also in Middlesex County.  

However, critics contend that the flood-protection site itself lies in a flood plain and that the millions to be spent on it would be better put to constructing a new tunnel to Manhattan.
