Congressman Rob Menendez Joins President Biden for Remarks on the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law and Hudson River Tunnel Project

 

NEW YORK, NY – Congressman Rob Menendez today joined President Biden as he announced Bipartisan Infrastructure Law funding to boost the Hudson River Tunnel Project, the main component of the Gateway Program.

 

“Under President Biden’s leadership, the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law is providing key funding for the Gateway Program, the largest and most significant infrastructure project in the country,” said Congressman Menendez. “Our century-old North River Tunnels are at serious risk of catastrophic failure, which we cannot and will not allow to happen. The Hudson River Tunnel Project will not only provide relief to commuters on the Northeast Corridor but will also create 72,000 well-paying jobs. As a Member of the Transportation and Infrastructure Committee, I look forward to continuing the important work to ensure that this project is funded and completed as soon as possible.”

 

The Hudson River Tunnel Project will construct a new rail tunnel under the Hudson River between New Jersey and New York to ensure continued service on the Northeast Corridor – the busiest passenger rail line in the United States.

 

The New Jersey section of the Hudson River Tunnel Project sits within the Eighth Congressional District.
