New York Governor Andrew Cuomo won’t attend a meeting with U.S. Transportation Secretary Anthony Foxx to discuss reviving Amtrak’s Gateway tunnel project under the Hudson River.

Foxx is set to be joined by Governor Chris Christie and U.S. Senator Cory Booker, both of New Jersey, in a meeting next week to discuss the $16 billion tunnel proposed by Amtrak in February 2011. The tube would connect New Jersey commuters to Manhattan and serve the Northeast Corridor rail line from Boston to Washington.
