NANCY, N.C. — In a few years, the New Jersey City-area is set to become the world’s biggest construction project.
The $50 billion project is expected to create an area about the size of Rhode Island, with more than 1 million residents.
It will create jobs for tens of thousands of workers, including hundreds of construction workers.
But for now, it’s still mostly empty.
In fact, the project hasn’t even begun construction.

It is expected create more than 5,000 construction jobs.
The New Brunswick Transportation Authority (NJTA) estimates that the project will create more direct jobs than all of the other large transportation projects in North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia and Tennessee combined.
But with so much work still to be done, some locals have been worried about the long-term impacts of the project.
What happens to the highway?
Construction on the $250-billion bridge is expected soon.
New Jersey is already the world capital of highway construction, but a bridge spanning the Catskills would be the first major public project in America.
The bridge is about three times the width of the entire New Jersey-New Jersey State highway system.
The span will span about 9.5 miles from New Brunswick to Camden.
A bridge spanning this size is expected by the end of this year.

The state’s $10.5 billion New Brunswick Bridge will be one of the largest in the country.
The 1,300-foot-wide, 565-foot wide span is expected be completed in 2019.
The New Brunswick Transit Authority will be a major beneficiary of the bridge.
It’s the largest commuter rail system in the U.S. and has more than 8,000 routes.
It runs through New Jersey and the Hudson River Valley.
The new span will be connected to commuter rail lines at the New Brunswick Port Authority and the Newark Metro Airport.
NJTA workers work on the construction site of the New Bergen-Bridgewater Expressway in New Bergebrough, N, NJ.
More than $3.2 billion is planned for the New York City-based project, which will be complete by 2026.
NJ Transit officials say that the state will get more than $8 billion in direct spending on the project by 2027, and more than half of the money will come from federal and state transportation programs.
The entire project will have about 1.4 million residents and 5,400 construction jobs, with most of the jobs concentrated in the Greater New York area, New Jersey’s largest metropolitan area.
The New Berglings are part of a larger project called the Greater Atlantic Corridor.
It aims to connect the Northeast to the Midwest by building a bridge connecting the New England coast to the Gulf Coast.
The Atlantic Corridor is expected for completion in 2019 and would connect New Jersey to Florida, Virginia, New Hampshire and Maine.
A third phase, called the Atlantic Crossing, will connect the Atlantic coast to New Jersey, New York and New Jersey with a toll road.

It’s expected to generate more than 7,000 direct jobs and nearly 2,100 construction
