This chapter first describes the reorganization of the New Jersey commission over the street-widening controversy. Thomas Albeus Adams, Samuel M. Shay, Frank F. Gallagher, and Charles S. Stevens were out while John F. Boyle, Weller H. Noyes, Theodore Boettger, and Thomas J. S. Barlow were retained. The new members were Isaac B. Ferris of Camden, Robert S. Sinclair of Newark, Judge John B. Kates of Camden, and Frank L. Suplee of Gloucester. On March 20, 1922, the newly appointed New Jersey commission held its first organizational meeting in Trenton and elected Boettger and Kates as chairman and vice chairman, respectively. The next day, the two state commissions held a joint meeting in New York and approved Kates' resolution for the reinstatement of the dismissed Board of Consulting Engineers. The remainder of the chapter discusses the start of excavations in New Jersey.
