News 12 NJ: Jersey City college students, public officials working to build new justice complex

JERSEY CITY, NJ — A true community effort is in the works in Hudson County. High school and college students along with construction workers and public officials are all working together to build a new justice complex in Jersey City.

County Executive Elect Craig Guy told News 12 New Jersey, “It’s a generational project. We expect this to be the biggest project within Hudson County by far.”

The Frank J. Guarini Justice Complex has been in the works for nearly six years. It’ll replace the Hudson County Administration Building on Newark Avenue in Jersey City in 2025. It’s all being built with the help of local students in partnership with woodwork manufacturer, Eastern Millwork.

Hudson County Community College is a partner, along with multiple students that have been working on the project, as a part of an apprenticeship where they get hands on experience working in different engineering positions.
