Port Authority Joins Tunnel Brigade

The only agency around here that doesn’t seem to have trouble coming up with money to do things is the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, rich off road tolls, airport fees and the like. So last year it anted up $2 billion toward the Trans-Hudson Express Tunnel, which fans like to refer to as THE Tunnel.

On Thursday afternoon, its board voted to become a full partner in the endeavor along with New Jersey Transit, which will be running the trains that actually go through THE Tunnel, connecting existing lines on the Jersey side with a new station under West 34th Street.

“We run facilities that rely on automobiles and that is just not a sufficient way to function today,” Port Authority Chairman Anthony Coscia told reporters after the vote.
