Resuscitating the Hudson River Tunnel

One plan to build a tunnel under the Hudson River from New Jersey to New York was killed by Governor Chris Christie, but New Jersey's senators have gotten behind a new plan to do the same thing.

"New Jersey's two Democratic senators, Frank R. Lautenberg and Robert Menendez, have been trying to revive the idea of a trans-Hudson train tunnel ever since Gov. Chris Christie upset them by halting construction on the one that New Jersey Transit started to build last year.

On Monday morning, the senators lined up with Amtrak officials to unveil their plan for a new rail link between New Jersey and New York City."

At this point plans are preliminary, and no funding sources have yet been named to push forward the $13.5 billion project.
