President Trump and the Federal government must help fund Gateway now.
Each day hundreds of thousands of Amtrak and NJ Transit passengers travel through the 108 year old tunnels beneath the Hudson River. The tunnels are in big trouble. In addition to their age, they were flooded during Superstorm Sandy, causing long-term damage. When the tunnels fail it will harm the commuters who depend on these trains, gridlock the highways as passengers switch to cars and buses, and overwhelm our airports as travelers between New York, Washington and Boston switch to planes. These disruptions will threaten the economy of entire Northeast and have ripple effects across the nation.
Every year we delay adds hundreds of millions of dollars to the cost of the project. Gateway is ready to go now, and the Federal government must step up and provide their fair portion of the funding.
Building Gateway will double rail capacity across the Hudson River, making transit a more attractive option for more riders, decongesting our region’s highways for those who need to drive, including trucks moving freight up and down the eastern seaboard. These improvements would also benefit Amtrak passengers in the Northeast Corridor as well, providing more reliability and potentially additional service.
Tell President Trump, Transportation Secretary Chao and their teams to fund Gateway so we can get building for the future.
