Lance: $900 Million More For Gateway Tunnel

Credits: Congressman Lance's Office

Congressman Leonard Lance (NJ-07) today hailed the draft text of the fiscal year 2018 U.S. Department of Transportation Appropriations Act that includes $900 million in new funding for the Gateway program:

“Congress is wise to invest in the Gateway tunnel proposal.  The Hudson River tunnel project is one of the most important infrastructure projects in the country, providing a critical link between New Jersey and New York where our regional economy contributes $3.7 trillion to the Nation's GDP,” said Lance.  “This is a major win for Garden State commuters that would not have been possible without the leadership of New Jersey's own Chairman Rodney Frelinghuysen.”

Today's announcement, coupled with passage of legislation signed into law by President Trump last spring providing additional funds for improvements to Amtrak’s Northeast Corridor, brings the combined federal support for the Hudson River tunnel project to nearly $1 billion.
