Current plans call for the rehabilitation of the existing 106-year-old tunnel and the construction of a brand new double track tunnel connecting New Jersey with New York Penn Station.
Gateway Program Development Corp.
NEW YORK — A nonprofit organization responsible for overseeing gateway projects connecting Newark, N.J., with New York’s Penn Station is now turning to the private sector for input on the Hudson Tunnel and Hudson Yards concrete casing projects.

The organization recently issued a request for information seeking ideas from private sector leaders on potential design, construction, and financing solutions for the projects.

The Hudson Tunnel project includes the construction of a new two-track Hudson River rail tunnel from New Jersey to New York Penn Station on Amtrak's Northeast Corridor, and the rehabilitation of the existing 106-year-old North River Tunnels, which were severely damaged by the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy in late 2012.

The final section of the Hudson Yards concrete casing also completed a project to preserve the railroad right-of-way for a future tunnel to Penn Station.

The Gateway program is a rail investment program that would sustain and improve passenger rail service along the Northeast Corridor.

The Gateway Program Development Corp. was established in November 2016 to oversee the gateway project with support from federal and local partners, including Amtrak, NJ Transit, and the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey.
