Expanding Trans-Hudson capacity with the Gateway Program is crucil to the New York City region's economy, says the Regional Plan Association

Gateway Tunnel Project on Fast Track to Complete Federal Review

The Biden administration said Friday it would conclude the Gateway Tunnel’s environmental review by May 28. New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo called the Gateway project, intended to add passenger rail capacity between New Jersey and New York, “the single most important infrastructure project not only for this region but for the entire nation.”

Cuomo added, “This announcement, combined with previous actions by the Biden administration to advance the nation’s first congestion pricing program in New York City, is proof positive that New York finally has a true partner in Washington.”

At the Real Estate Board of New York, president James Whelan said, “Strong leadership from the Biden administration on infrastructure is a welcome sign for the nation’s economic recovery.” He added, “It will be crucial for the federal government to keep this momentum going and act quickly to allocate the funds needed to get the project underway.”
