President Joe Biden heralded work on the Gateway tunnel project, a massive rail infrastructure initiative he said would improve travel for workers heading across the Hudson River between New York and New Jersey.

“That’s how important this project is for up to 200,000 passengers who take Amtrak or New Jersey Transit under the Hudson River every single day,” said Biden on Tuesday at the West Side Rail Yard in New York City.
