Testosterone is a crucial hormone for men and plays an important role throughout the male lifespan. Most of a male's testosterone is produced through the testicles. Also called the male sex hormone, testosterone starts playing its part during puberty.
When a male goes through puberty, testosterone helps males develop:
As boys turn to men and men grow older, testosterone levels deplete naturally. Sometimes, events like injuries and chronic health conditions like diabetes can lower testosterone levels. Unfortunately, when a man loses too much T, it results in hypogonadism. When this happens, the testosterone must be replaced, or the male will suffer from symptoms like muscle loss, low libido, and even depression.
TRT is exactly what it sounds like: a treatment option for men that replaces testosterone so that your body regulates hormones properly and restores balance to your life. Also called androgen replacement therapy, TRT alleviates the symptoms that men experience with low T.
Originally lab-synthesized in 1935, testosterone has grown in popularity since it was produced. Today, TRT and other testosterone treatments are among the most popular prescriptions in the U.S.
Without getting too deep into the science, TRT works by giving your body the essential testosterone it needs to function correctly. As the primary androgen for both males and females, testosterone impacts many of the body's natural processes â especially those needed for overall health. For example, men with low T are more prone to serious problems like cardiovascular disease and even type-2 diabetes.
When your body quits making enough testosterone, it causes your health to suffer until a solution is presented. That's where TRT and anti-aging medicine for men can help. TRT helps balance your hormones and replenish your depleted testosterone. With time, your body will begin to heal, and many symptoms like low libido and irritability begin to diminish.
For men, aging is the biggest contributor to lower testosterone levels, though there are other causes like obesity, drug abuse, testicular injuries, and certain prescribed medications. Sometimes, long-term health conditions like AIDS, cirrhosis of the liver, and kidney disease can lower testosterone levels.
When a man's testosterone levels drop significantly, it alters his body's ratio of estrogen and testosterone. Lower testosterone levels cause more abdominal fat, which in turn results in increased aromatase, which converts even more testosterone into estrogen.
If you're concerned that you might have low T, you're not alone. Millions of men in the U.S. feel the same way. The best way to find out if your testosterone is low is to get your levels tested.
For sustainable testosterone replacement therapy benefits, you must consult with hormone doctors and experts like those you can find at Global Life Rejuvenation. That way, you can find the root cause of your hormone problems, and our team can craft a personalized HRT plan tailored to your needs.
One of the most common reasons that men choose TRT is because they have lost that "spark" with their partner. It's not easy for a man to hear that they're not performing like they used to. Intimacy is a powerful part of any relationship. When a once-healthy sex life dwindles, it can cause serious relationship issues.
The good news is that low libido doesn't have to be a permanent problem. TRT and anti-aging medicines help revert hormone levels back into their normal range. When this happens, many men have a more enjoyable life full of intimacy and sex drive.
Weak erections â it's an uncomfortable subject for many men in the U.S. to talk about. It's even worse to experience first-hand. You're in the midst of an intimate moment, and you can't do your part. Despite being perfectly normal, many men put blame and shame upon themselves when they can't achieve an erection. And while the inability to perform sexually can be caused by poor diet, obesity, and chronic health conditions, low testosterone is often a contributing factor.
Fortunately, weak erections are a treatable condition. The best way to regain your confidence and ability in bed is to speak with your doctor. Once any underlying conditions are discovered, options like TRT may be the best course of treatment.
Do you find it harder and harder to work out and lift weights in the gym? Are you having problems lifting heavy items that you once had no problem lifting?
Recent studies show that when men are inactive, they lose .5% of muscle strength every year, from ages 25 to 60. After 60, muscle loss doubles every decade. While some muscle loss is common as men age, a significant portion can be tied to low testosterone levels. When a man's T levels drop, so does his muscle mass.
Testosterone is a much-needed component used in gaining and retaining muscle mass. That's why many doctors prescribe TRT Byram Center, NJ, for men having problems with strength. One recent study found that men who increased their testosterone levels using TRT gained as much as 2.5 pounds of muscle mass.
Whether your gym performance is lacking, or you can't lift heavy items like you used to, don't blame it all on age. You could be suffering from hypogonadism.
If you're like millions of other men in their late 20s and 30s, dealing with hair loss is a reality you don't want to face. Closely related to testosterone decline and hormone imbalances, hair loss is distressing for many men. This common symptom is often related to a derivative of testosterone called DHT. Excess amounts of DHT cause hair follicles to halt their production, causing follicles to die.
Because hair located at the front and crown is more sensitive to DHT, it grows slower than other follicles and eventually stops growing permanently. Thankfully, TRT and anti-aging treatments for men in Byram Center, NJ, is now available to address hair loss for good.
While it's true that you can't change your genes, you can change the effects of low testosterone on your body. Whether you're suffering from thinning hair or hair loss across your entire head, TRT and other hormone therapies can stop hair loss and even reverse the process.
Also called "man boobs," gynecomastia is essentially the enlargement of male breast tissue. This increase in fatty tissue is often caused by hormonal imbalances and an increase in estrogen. For men, estrogen levels are elevated during andropause. Also called male menopause, andropause usually happens because of a lack of testosterone.
If you're a man between the ages of 40 and 55, and you're embarrassed by having large breasts, don't lose hope. TRT is a safe, effective way to eliminate the underlying cause of gynecomastia without invasive surgery. With a custom HRT and fitness program, you can bring your testosterone and estrogen levels back to normal before you know it.
Decreased energy was once considered a normal part of aging. Today, many doctors know better. Advances in technology and our understanding of testosterone show that low T and lack of energy often go hand-in-hand.
If you're struggling to enjoy activities like playing with your kids or hiking in a park due to lack of energy, it could be a sign of low T. Of course, getting tired is perfectly normal for any man. But if you're suffering from continual fatigue, a lack of enjoyment, or a decrease in energy, it might be time to speak with a doctor.
Whether you're having a tough time getting through your day or can't finish activities you used to love, TRT could help.
A study from 2011 showed that men who lose a week's worth of sleep can experience lowered testosterone levels â as much as 15%, according to experts. Additional research into the topic found almost 15% of workers only get five hours of sleep (or less) per night. These findings suggest that sleep loss negatively impacts T levels and wellbeing.
The bottom line is that men who have trouble sleeping often suffer from lower testosterone levels as a result. If you find yourself exhausted at the end of the day but toss and turn all night long, you might have low T.
TRT and anti-aging medicines can restore your T levels back to normal, which can help you sleep better with proper diet and exercise.
You're feeling down about everything, and there's no solid explanation for why you're in such a crummy mood. Your daily life is great and full of success, but you can't help but feel unexcited and unmotivated. If you're experiencing symptoms like these, you may be depressed â and it may stem from low testosterone.
A research study from Munich found that men with depression also commonly had low testosterone levels. This same study also found that depressed men had cortisol levels that were 67% higher than other men. Because higher cortisol levels lead to lower levels of testosterone, the chances of severe depression increase.
Depression is a very real disorder and should always be diagnosed and treated by your doctor. One treatment option gaining in popularity is TRT for depression. Studies show that when TRT is used to restore hormone levels, men enjoy a lighter, more improved mood. That's great news for men who are depressed and have not had success with other treatments like anti-depression medicines, which alter the brain's chemistry.
Ask anyone over the age of 50 how their memory is, and they'll tell you it wasn't what it used to be. Memory loss and lack of concentration occur naturally as we age â these aren't always signs of dementia or Alzheimer's.
However, what many men consider a symptom of age may be caused by low testosterone. A 2006 study found that males with low T levels performed poorly on cognitive skill tests. These results suggest that low testosterone may play a part in reducing cognitive ability. If you're having trouble staying on task or remembering what your schedule is for the day, it might not be due to your age. It might be because your testosterone levels are too low. If you're having trouble concentrating or remembering daily tasks, it could be time to talk to your doctor.
Why? The aforementioned study found that participating men experienced improved cognitive skills when using TRT.
Even though today's society is more inclusive of large people, few adults enjoy gaining weight as they age. Despite their best efforts, many men just can't shed the extra pounds around their midsections, increasing their risk of heart disease and cancer.
Often, male weight gain is caused by hormone imbalances that slow the metabolism and cause weight to pile on. This phase of life is called andropause and happens when there is a lack of testosterone in the body. Couple that with high cortisol levels, and you've got a recipe for flabby guts and double chins.
Fortunately, TRT treatments and physician-led weight loss programs can correct hormone imbalances and lead to healthy weight loss for men.
Sermorelin is a synthetic hormone peptide, like GHRH, which triggers the release of growth hormones. When used under the care of a qualified physician, Sermorelin can help you lose weight, increase your energy levels, and help you feel much younger.
Human growth hormone (HGH) therapy has been used for years to treat hormone deficiencies. Unlike HGH, which directly replaces declining human growth hormone levels, Sermorelin addresses the underlying cause of decreased HGH, stimulating the pituitary gland naturally. This approach keeps the mechanisms of growth hormone production active.
Benefits of Sermorelin include:
Ipamorelin helps to release growth hormones in a person's body by mimicking a peptide called ghrelin. Ghrelin is one of three hormones which work together to regulate the growth hormone levels released by the pituitary gland. Because Ipamorelin stimulates the body to produce growth hormone, your body won't stop its natural growth hormone production, which occurs with synthetic HGH.
Ipamorelin causes growth hormone secretion that resembles natural release patterns rather than being constantly elevated from HGH. Because ipamorelin stimulates the natural production of growth hormone, our patients can use this treatment long-term with fewer health risks.
One of the biggest benefits of Ipamorelin is that it is suitable for both men and women. It provides significant short and long-term benefits in age management therapies, boosting patients' overall health, wellbeing, and outlook on life. When growth hormone is produced by the pituitary gland using Ipamorelin, clients report amazing benefits.
Some of those benefits include:

ARLINGTON, Va. (AP) — After winning the Norris Trophy as the NHL's top defenseman and earning playoff MVP honors for leading the Colorado Avalanche to the Stanley Cup, Cale Makar had seemingly reached hockey's peak before his 24th birthday.
Turns out he still has a few tricks up the sleeve of his No. 8 jersey.
Makar skated almost 33 minutes in Colorado's victory at Carolina on Thursday night — the second-highest total of his NHL career and the most he has played in 193 regular-season games. That earned him a day of rest Friday before the Avalanche visit the Washington Capitals on Saturday and plenty of praise from teammates for shouldering that load in November amid injury problems that have ravaged the roster.
“The responsibility is really high, especially when he’s playing power play, penalty kill and (even strength),” veteran defenseman Erik Johnson said. “He was playing 30 (minutes) almost all playoffs, and we’re down some ‘D’ right now, so guys have to play some more minutes and he’s one of them.”
With Colorado missing Samuel Girard and Bowen Byram on the blue line, no one is being asked to do more than Makar, whose previous regular-season career high in ice time was 31:49 in January 2022. His ice time against the Hurricanes was the most by an Avalanche player in nearly 20 years and was just the latest accomplishment to add on to Makar's strong start with 18 points in 15 games.
“He takes care of himself,” top center Nathan MacKinnon said. “His mentality is very even-keeled when he plays. He doesn’t get too emotional. I think that helps with his longevity on the ice. He’s obviously one of the best players in the game, the best defenseman in the game, so it’s nice that we can rely on him to play that many minutes.”
In the playoffs? Sure. But coach Jared Bednar would rather not rely on Makar quite this much this early in the season, given the long road ahead until the playoffs begin in April.
The Avalanche have not only a return to the postseason on their minds but a Cup repeat bid, and they need points and wins now to make sure that is possible.

Did you know that New Jersey has a Cherry Blossom Princess?
The Cherry Blossom Princess Program is an educational, cultural and educational program that offers professional development that offers a week-long host of activities for young women leaders age 19-24 from across the United States and the world. This year, Byram’s Jolisse Gray, 21, was, after an extensive application process, chosen as New Jersey’s Princess.
Gray attended Sussex Vo-Tech High School where she pursued singing of all sorts and will soon graduate from her Baltimore institute of higher education.
The program was inaugurated in 1946 as a means of honoring the gift by Japan of cherry blossom trees to the United States — over a century ago - solidifying a diplomatic relationship and friendship between the two nations. In 1915, in gratitude for the gift of cherry trees, former President William Howard Taft sent a gift of dogwood trees to Japan.
“It was a long and very intense application process, and I was so honored to be selected,” the Notre Dame of Maryland University senior said. “I had to demonstrate my leadership and academic strengths and my passion for social, community and world affairs among other things.”
Young women leaders are chosen by State/Territorial Society or by international embassy to be Cherry Blossom Princesses. Once chosen, these young women represent their respective states, territories, and countries in both public and private events held each day across the Washington, DC area. It started on Sunday, April 3 and culminated with a parade on April 9.
“It was an amazing experience,” Gray said. “We interacted with top government officials as well as business, arts and media leaders throughout the week.”
Alumnae of the Cherry Blossom Princess Program include leaders in arenas including government, business, science, education, and the arts across the globe.
“The Cherry Blossom Queen is chosen by, believe it or not, the spinning of a wheel,” Gray said. “I wasn’t lucky enough to win that, but it’s an interesting concept.”
There’s a reason for the selection process, states the Cherry Blossom Program’s website.
“Each Princess has been selected by their State Society based on their achievements and all the US Princesses are qualified to represent the United States,” it reads. “Therefore, it is the tradition of the program that the US Queen is selected by the spinning of a wheel. The wheel is spun once for the Runner Up and a second time for the Queen.”
Gray’s ethnicity is Ukrainian and Puerto Rican and is very saddened by what is going on in the Ukraine
“A lot of people don’t realize that New Jersey has a Ukrainian hub,” Gray said. “I often visit my grandma in Paterson where there are many Ukrainian people.”
Gray learned of the Cherry Blossom Princess program as someone from her university represented Maryland four years ago.
“I go to school for international relations and am very interested in anything related to international diplomacy,” she said. “Japan is a really good ally regarding defense.”
Upon graduation, Gray plans to go into private sector defense or security. Her hobbies are singing and kayaking and she’s a huge fan New Jersey and local newspapers.
“I love New Jersey and anything Jersey,” she said. “I love Jersey thing like the whole Taylor ham versus pork roll and the fact that Jersey girls don’t pump their own gas and just everything Jersey,” she said. “My dad, John Gray, and I are also huge fans of getting the physical paper. There’s just something old school and great about reading a physical paper rather than seeing it online and I hope this one never goes away.”

A true a luck of the draw, the Visual and Performing Arts Department at Sussex County Community College will take its audience on a journey of a lifetime in the upcoming Fall production of "Everybody" by Branden Jacobs-Jenkins. A 2018 Pulitzer Prize finalist, "Everybody" takes a modern riff on the fifteenth-century morality play, "Everyman." The comedic-drama follows Everybody as they journey through life's greatest mystery-the meaning of living.
Directed by Professor Allison Ognibene, "Everybody" runs Nov. 10 through Nov. 12, at 7:30 p.m. in the Performing Arts Center. Tickets are $10 for general admission and $5 for the college's students and faculty with ID and can either be purchased at the door or online at https://cloud.broadwayworld.com/rec/ticketclick.cfm?fromlink=2206432®id=16&articlelink=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.simpletix.com%2Fe%2Feverybody-by-branden-jacobs-jenkins-ticket-117685?utm_source=BWW2022&utm_medium=referral&utm_campaign=article&utm_content=bottombuybutton1.
"During the pandemic, I read an extremely timely play, 'Everybody', even though it was written two years prior to Covid-19," remarked Ognibene, who is the part-time Coordinator of Theater at Sussex. "When the 15th century play 'Everyman' was written, it was in response to the bubonic plague. Here we were globally sitting at home for almost two years questioning our fates -- will we get covid -- will we live - will there be any sense of normalcy again? There was no question what play I was going to direct when the college fully reopened the theater in the Fall 2022. It was serendipity in the most startling way."
The adapted tale unfolds when "God," played by Isabella Cruz of Vernon, sees how "Everybody" has misused the perfect gift of life bestowed upon them and has summoned "Death," played by Nicolas Galloza Generof Hopatcong, to take "Everybody" on their final journey to the beyond. Chris Flatt of Hamburg, Alexis Borowic of Sussex, Aurelia Shanga of Mount Olive, Colin O'Sullivan of Hopatcong, and Tyler Charters of Vernon, are the "Somebodies" chosen. The actors who do not win the ultimate prize of the fateful journey with Death will play a variety of characters that Everybody encounters.
Everybody asks existential questions about life and ponders if they were good. Everybody asks Death if they could bring someone to join them on their one-way journey, including Friendship, Cousin, Kinship and Stuff. Everybody's faculties also are invited to join them, including Beauty, played by Samantha Wolujczyk of Sussex; Mind, played by Monica Salazar of Sussex; Senses, played by Alexis Borowic; Love played by Morgan Burke of Vernon; and Strength, played by Jake Jackson of Washington, who also plays an unexpected visitor, Evil. Rounding out the characters is Time, played by Shannon Burke of Vernon.
The production team includes Stage Manager Lisa Geerhart of Newton; Assistant Stage Manager Emma Hischak of Sparta; Technical Director Tim O'Connor of Dingmans Ferry, PA; lighting designer Anthony Guerra of Milford, PA; Property Master Jess Dooley of Hopatcong; Costume Masters Monica Salazar of Sussex and Natalie Tognetti of Newton, Backstage crew Catarina Cruz of Vernon, Olivia Fisher of Newton; Assistant to the Director Dana Nigro of Stillwater, and Sound Operator Jake Jackson of Washington. Set construction was done by Wally Stanek of Byram and William Ognibene of Sparta.

This article is part of our FanDuel NHL series.
It's a busy Tuesday with 10 games on the slate. The Penguins, Knights, Stars and Devils are all playing the second half of a back-to-back, while the Rangers and Lightning are playing the first half of their back-to-back.
The marquee matchup will be Rangers vs. Avalanche, which could serve as a preview of this year's Stanley Cup Finals. Despite the offensive firepower on both teams, the Rangers have the best goalie in the league in Igor Shesterkin and the Avs have one of the deepest defenses in the league, highlighted by Cale Makar.
The Blackhawks vs. Panthers, Kraken vs. Sabres, Blue Jackets vs. Coyotes and Canadiens vs. Wild are games to target for high-scoring games. They could potentially feature more goals because either their defense or goaltending have been poor. The Wild rank in the top 10 in GF/GP and bottom 10 in GA/GP, making them an ideal target in daily fantasy. Joining them are the Sabres (4.40 GF/GP) with their top-10 offense, and the Kraken (3.86 GA/GP) and Jackets (3.86 GA/GP) with their bottom-10 defense.
Eric Comrie, BUF at SEA ($8,500): Comrie is expected to get the start and the Sabres have been perfect in their road trip so far. They're coming off a 5-1 win against the Canucks and the Kraken shouldn't be any tougher. The Kraken's goaltending will succumb to a very balanced and fast Sabres offense, and even without top shutdown defender Mattias Samuelsson in the lineup, the Kraken have no elite forwards who can generate offense on their own.
Adin Hill, VEG at SJ ($8,200): The Knights are playing the second half of a back-to-back after defeating the Leafs on Monday, but history favors them in this matchup. The Knights are 11-3-1 all-time against the rival Sharks – Hill's former team for added juice – and this matchup is sure to be just as lopsided. The Sharks have won two of their past three but have also yet to win at home, going 0-2-0 at the SAP Center. They're also averaging fewer than two goals per game and top sniper Timo Meier has zero goals in eight games.
Sergei Bobrovsky, FLA vs. CHI ($7,800): Sure, the Blackhawks have won three straight and Bobrovsky is back to his usual underperforming self, but even with a depleted blue line the Panthers should have no problems taking this game. Bob was a perfect 2-0-0 against them last season, including one shutout.
Andrei Vasilevskiy, TB at LA ($7,700): It's a relatively cheap price to pay for arguably the league's best goalie. The Lightning don't look as dominant as they once did but the Kings have been surprisingly poor with only one regulation win after many expected them to take another leap. Vasilevskiy is 7-2-0 all-time against the Kings.
Elvis Merzlikins, CBJ vs. ARI ($7,300): The Jackets power play has been anemic but their offense sans Patrik Laine is still much better than the Coyotes' 28th-ranked offense. The Jackets have been very good lately, winning three of their past four games and finding ways to provide good goal support with 17 goals scored during that span.
Dominik Kubalik, DET vs. NJ ($5,000): A little expensive to be a value pick, but note Kubalik has been on fire with three goals and eight points in his past four games taking Tyler Bertuzzi's spot on the top line. The Devils are playing the second half of a back-to-back and expected to start Vitek Vanecek, who allowed five goals in his only start this season.
Sean Monahan, MON vs. MIN ($4,800): Monahan is on a three-game point streak and playing well on the top line with Nick Suzuki and Cole Caufield. Injuries have robbed him of his quickness and consistency, but Monahan was once a 30-goal threat. He's the third wheel on this line but won't be dragging them down because Monahan can score, too. Monahan also features on PP1 and the Wild have a huge problem keeping the puck out of their net.
Danton Heinen, PIT at CGY ($4,600): Heinen didn't factor into the score sheet in Monday's loss to the Oilers, but he's expected to keep skating on the Pens' top line in Jake Guentzel's absence. At the very least, Heinen will get a few shots on net.
Max Domi, CHI vs. FLA ($4,000): Domi has scored a goal in two straight games and remains Patrick Kane's center at even strength and on the PP. While the Blackhawks are outclassed in almost every facet in this matchup, the Panthers defense is thin and barring a strong performance from Bobrovsky – which is somewhat unlikely – they're going to allow a few goals.
Sabres at Kraken
This is one of the best value stacks because everyone continues to underestimate how good the Sabres really are. Thompson still looks every bit like the center he was last season and Tuch now has 45 points in 55 games playing for his childhood team. Skinner drags them down because he's no longer a goal-scoring threat, but he's still shifty and creative enough to create scoring chances. The Kraken do not have any marquee defensemen and their goalies remain sieves.
Golden Knights at Sharks
The original "Misfits Line" is back together and there's a reason why Vegas kept them around even though many players have come and gone. The Knights didn't have to work very hard against the Leafs last night so fatigue shouldn't be a problem; otherwise, note that Karlsson (24 points), Marchessault (26) and Smith (24) have all scored more points against the Sharks in their careers than any other team.
Rasmus Dahlin, BUF at SEA ($7,100): Dahlin has a chance to score a goal in his sixth straight game to make history, and it's a good matchup against the shaky Kraken. He's been arguably the best defenseman in fantasy this season.
Bowen Byram, COL at NYR ($5,400): With Devon Toews out of the lineup, expect Byram to log at least 20 minutes for the fourth straight game. He's on a three-game point streak and, when he gets this much ice time, is as good a bet to score a point among defensemen not named Makar, Fox or Dahlin.
Calen Addison, MIN at MON ($4,700): Addison's minutes have dipped recently as the Wild try to solve major problems in their own end, and offense has always been his calling card, not defense. However, Addison remains their top PP QB and a matchup against the Habs shouldn't be hard to score goals. Addison's a good value play.

NEWARK, NJ — The NJ TRANSIT Board of Directors today advanced the project to restore rail service to Sussex County along the Lackawanna Cutoff with the approval of a contract to rehabilitate the Roseville Tunnel. The rehabilitation of the Roseville Tunnel is a crucial element in restoring passenger rail service from Port Morris to a new proposed station in Andover.
“It has long been the promise of NJ TRANSIT to the people of Sussex County to restore service along the Lackawanna Cutoff,” said New Jersey Department of Transportation Commissioner and NJ TRANSIT Board Chair Diane Gutierrez-Scaccetti. “The contract awarded today for the rehabilitation of the Roseville Tunnel demonstrates this administration’s commitment to turn words into action and deliver accessible public transportation options and service to customers around the state.”
“The contract awarded today for the rehabilitation of the Roseville Tunnel demonstrates NJ TRANSIT’s commitment to the residents of Sussex County in restoring rail service along the Lackawanna Cutoff” said NJ TRANSIT President & CEO Kevin S. Corbett. “As we work toward maximizing equitable access to public transportation throughout New Jersey, I’m pleased that we’re advancing this important project in the northwest portion of our state where transit options are more limited.”
The contract with Schiavone Construction Co. LLC of Secaucus, NJ includes the final design, construction, and commissioning of the Roseville Tunnel Rehabilitation project. The approximately $32.5 million contract is part of NJ TRANSIT’s larger Lackawanna Cutoff Restoration project.
The Lackawanna Cutoff Restoration project focuses on the planned restoration of passenger rail service on the east end of the Lackawanna Cutoff, between Port Morris and Andover, building a new rail station in Andover and replacing approximately seven miles of track. As part of the project, the Roseville Tunnel, which is a rock tunnel located near Roseville Road in Byram Township, will be rehabilitated.
The work in the contract awarded to Schiavone Construction Co. LLC includes stabilization of rock slopes, construction of 8,000 ft of track bed, drainage improvements, lighting and communication for the tunnel, and replacement of two culverts (Hudson Farm culvert and Junction Brook culvert), and other related work.
The Lackawanna Cutoff Restoration Project from Port Morris to Andover is anticipated to be completed in late 2026.
