Tunnel To Nowhere

New, 1 comment

Construction began yesterday on a $185 million concrete box tunnel under the Hudson River. The box will sit empty for awhile, but one day?fingers crossed!?it will connect New York and New Jersey with a new rail tunnel spanning a total of 800 feet. The box had to be built now before Hudson Yards blocked the road to Penn Station; plus, the government funneled some post-Sandy money to the project. [DNAinfo; previously]
