FORT LEE, N.J. (AP) - Roads leading to the George Washington Bridge will get fixed under a 10-year “Restoring the George” rehabilitation project.

The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey’s board on Thursday approved a $67.5 million contract to replace the Palisades Interstate Parkway helix in Fort Lee. The money will also include repairing New Jersey approach spans that pass over the Hudson Terrace and New Jersey Anchorage. Work is expected to begin this year and last through 2019.

The agency also is spending $90.9 million to rehabilitate the Center Avenue and Lemoine Avenue bridges in Fort Lee, which pass over approach roadways to the bridge. Construction is expected to start in 2017.

The Port Authority says the George Washington Bridge carried more than 50.5 million eastbound automobiles, buses and trucks in 2015.
