NEW JERSEY (PIX11) — Governor Chris Christie is expected to speak to the press at 11 a.m. in Trenton Thursday.

 There are many questions for Christie following the news that key aides orchestrated lane closures leading to the George Washington Bridge last September.

Christie denied involvement in a statement Wednesday.

The four-day lane closures were apparently done because Fort Lee’s mayor did not endorse Christie for Governor. It caused major traffic jams, increased wait times for emergency services and local children were late to school.

Newly released emails and text messages implicate that Christie’s deputy chief of staff wrote, “Time for some traffic problems in Fort Lee.” A Port Authority project director and Christie friend replied, “Got it.”
