NJ Transit and the U.S. Department of Transportation’s Federal Railroad Administration (FRA) are holding a public information session on Tuesday, Jan. 30, 2018 to provide opportunities for members of the public and stakeholders to learn about the Hudson Tunnel Project and potential impacts to your area.
The Hudson Tunnel Project is intended to preserve the current functionality of the North River Tunnel – the existing passenger rail crossing under the Hudson River between New Jersey and Penn Station in New York – and to strengthen the resiliency of Amtrak’s Northeast Corridor (NEC). The North River Tunnel, which is over 100 years old and sustained damage during Superstorm Sandy, is a critical link in the NEC and is used daily by thousands of Amtrak and NJ Transit passengers.
The public information session will be held from 6 to 8 p.m. on Jan. 30 at the Lido Restaurant, 2600 Tonnelle Ave. in North Bergen. Project staff will be available to answer questions about the project. Spanish language interpreters will be present and the meeting facility is accessible to persons with disabilities. If any other special accommodations are needed, contact the project team five days prior to the meeting at 973-261-8115 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
