The Ready To Build campaign showcases five critical investments - including the Hudson Tunnel Project - that are vital to the realization of a renewed, modern passenger rail system.
Opened in 1910, the existing two-track North River Tunnel carries passengers between Manhattan and New Jersey. Severely damaged in Superstorm Sandy, urgent construction of a new rail tunnel under the Hudson River and rehabilitation of the existing tunnel is proposed.
The project is also a key component of the Gateway Program, a suite of strategic rail infrastructure improvements designed to enhance current services and create new capacity in and around New York City.
