New Jersey lawmakers are questioning why the Port Authority closed the local lanes to the George Washington Bridge in early September.
Lanes were closed for nearly a week -- without any notice to the public, elected officials, or law enforcement.
State lawmakers Monday plan to question Port Authority leaders about the closures that caused huge traffic problems on the bridge two months ago. Local officials say they weren't told in advance and some officials have suggested the closures were "abusive."
