• Amtrak Gateway Tunnels

  • This forum will be for issues that don't belong specifically to one NYC area transit agency, but several. For instance, intra-MTA proposals or MTA-wide issues, which may involve both Metro-North Railroad (MNRR) and the Long Island Railroad (LIRR). Other intra-agency examples: through running such as the now discontinued MNRR-NJT Meadowlands special. Topics which only concern one operating agency should remain in their respective forums.

In a milestone event, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers announced on Dec. 1 the issuing of a permit to allow construction of the tunnel and tracks under the Hudson River. The Hudson Tunnel Project looks to have finally broken through the last barrier leading to construction. …

The Gateway Development Corporation said federal financing for the Hudson Tunnel Project could be ready by the end of 2022. The project is expected to be complete in 2035. …
In spite of the enthusiasm permeating the article, the “could” still haunts everything. And while that “could” indicates a completion time of 13 years, recall that the PRR completed the North River Tunnels in two.

Well, I will just have to have a six foot long "periscope" dug so I can keep an eye on this project (my age is at my profile).

Bet Noel and Randy would also appreciate same (I knew both these gentlemen face to face).

We'll have to keep track of your final "berthing track" so some of us can come and bring news. :)
