NJDOT Commissioner Jamie Fox applauds Governors’ funding proposal for a new trans-Hudson rail tunnel

(Trenton) - “The proposed funding framework outlined in a letter today from Governors Christie and Cuomo to President Obama is an important step forward in the long stalled effort to build a new trans-Hudson commuter rail tunnel,” NJDOT Commissioner Jamie Fox said. “The need for this new tunnel cannot be overstated. It is absolutely essential for the region and the residents of both New Jersey and New York. This letter represents progress and a sends a bipartisan message that the time is now. We cannot wait for our century old system to fail us.”

“New Jersey’s Congressional delegation in Washington has been vocal in their advocacy for this project. Both Senators Booker and Menendez are to be applauded for their efforts to find federal funding, so that all stakeholders contribute their fair share to help make this a reality.”
