Bridgegate II: Investigators reportedly looking into Christie's funding plans for Pulaski Skyway

Chris ChristieNew Jersey Gov. Chris Christie is facing what could be Bridgegate II -- an investigation into his plans to fund repairs to the Pulaski Skyway, the New York Times reports.

The problem is that the skyway, a dramatic 3.5-mile bridge-causeway over the Passaic and Hackensack rivers between Newark and Jersey City, belongs to the state. Christie got a 2011 agreement to use $1.8 billion in Port Authority of New York and New Jersey money to pay for a much-needed rehab.

The Manhattan District Attorney's Office and the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission are investigating the agreement, the Times said, citing documents, emails and sources close to the case. The investigation appears to have been sparked by the uproar over last year's lane closings on approach roads to the George Washington Bridge, which caused massive traffic jams for four days in Fort Lee, N.J.

Documents show that Port Authority lawyers said funding from the bi-state agency could not be used for a New Jersey project. The Port Authority eventually decided the skyway could be treated as an access to the Lincoln Tunnel, several miles away.
