Gateway Program Moving Forward
The Department of Transportation is reprioritizing advancement of the Gateway Program, which includes the Hudson Tunnel Project, with the aim of completing the Environmental Impact Statement for the project by the end of June 2021. The Hudson Tunnel Project includes two main components: the construction of a new two-track Hudson River rail tunnel connecting the National Railroad Passenger Corporation’s (AMTRAK) existing Northeast Corridor (NEC) tracks east of Frank R. Lautenberg Station in Secaucus, New Jersey, to the existing rail complex at Penn Station New York (PSNY), and the rehabilitation of the century-old existing North River Tunnel, which incurred serious damage during Superstorm Sandy in 2012.
Gall Zeidler Consultants (GZ) is providing technical expertise, mainly related to underground works, to support the Program Management Support Services(PMSS) for AMTRAK.
