A bit off-topic, but does anyone know if the Gerdau(?) steel plant in Perth Amboy is open again? I think it closed about 5 years ago, but saw some posts that said it was open to supply something for the new Tappan Zee Bridge project, although maybe the posters mixed up the Sayreville and Perth Amboy locations. I guess that plant used to be (and hopefully still is?) served from Oak Island or Port Reading yard.
EDIT: I found a link with an article that goes with the pictures: http://www.mycentraljersey.com/story/ne ... /14811925/" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;
The recession took a toll on the Perth Amboy plant. The melt shop was closed in 2006, followed by the rolling mill in 2009, leaving about 180 workers out of jobs, Quiring said.
"It's a higher cost to operate in the Northeast," he said. "We tried to reduce costs and limit input, but with the recession demand dropped so much it wasn't viable to operate."
