The Federal Railroad Administration (FRA) and NJ TRANSIT are jointly preparing an Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) to evaluate the Hudson Tunnel Project. The Project is intended to preserve the current functionality of the Northeast Corridor’s (NEC) Hudson River rail crossing between New Jersey and New York and strengthen the resiliency of the NEC. The EIS is being prepared pursuant to the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 (NEPA). As appropriate, FRA and NJ TRANSIT will coordinate with Amtrak and the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey (PANYNJ) on the EIS.
The FRA and NJ TRANSIT invite you to learn about the proposed Project and the environmental review process. The public information open houses, to be held in New Jersey and New York City, offer you an opportunity to learn about the Preferred Alternative. See the box on the right for details. We have also added documents to our Library for your review. See the box below for these additions.
