The Federal Railroad Administration (FRA) jointly with NJ TRANSIT and the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey have issued the Final Environmental Impact Statement (EIS)/Final Section 4(f) Evaluation for the Hudson Tunnel Project; FRA and the Federal Transit Administration have also issued the Record of Decision (ROD) for the Project.
The Hudson Tunnel Project proposes to rehabilitate the existing tunnel under the Hudson River that carries Amtrak and NJ TRANSIT Northeast Corridor passenger trains between New Jersey and New York, and construct a new tunnel and associated railroad infrastructure to carry passenger rail trains while the existing tunnel is being rehabilitated.
The EIS was prepared pursuant to the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 (NEPA). NJ TRANSIT and the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey (PANYNJ) are joint lead local agencies in the development of the EIS. FRA is coordinating compliance with Section 106 of the National Historic Preservation Act (Section 106) with the NEPA process.
