N.Y. Gateway Project Gets a Plug From Biden Infrastructure Chief

  • Plan for new Hudson River rail tunnel has faced many obstacles
  • Report warns of economic consequences from neglect of transit

President Joe Biden’s infrastructure czar, Mitch Landrieu said the US Northeast Corridor rail line would receive “a lot of attention” as far as spending, and called the $12.4 billion Gateway plan “a cathedral project.” 

Landrieu also said that while there was money available from Biden’s bipartisan infrastructure package, it was up to state and local officials to set priorities and apply for assistance.
