Planned rockfall-guarding fence for highway through Delaware Water Gap NRA has residents up in arms

Drivers pass beneath craggy cliffs and rough rock faces on their way through the Delaware Water Gap on I-80. But one New Jersey township fears a "'Jurassic Park'-style" fence proposed by the state transportation department will ruin one of the state's most scenic views.

The approximately half-mile-long, $50-million-plus fence is being designed to guard against potential rockfalls in Knowlton and Hardwick townships in northern Warren County, about a mile from the bridge connecting Pennsylvania and New Jersey and within the 70,000-acre Delaware Water Gap National Recreation Area.
