Tunnel Project on Track. The long awaited Hudson tube connecting NYC with New Jersey has been green lighted. Hochul and New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy have signed on board. The first phase of the 14 Billion project will cost 2.6 Billion. 60 percent of that will be funded by the federal government. The balance will be shared equally by New York and New Jersey. The 2 tunnels will replace the antiquated existing facilities. The deal had been kicked around for years by Cuomo. It was part of his excessive tax and spend policies. Since then it has been embraced by his successor Hochul. She continues the big time spending by Democratic administrations. It would be the largest public works undertaking in the country. Tunnel Project on Track. The bill will be footed by New York taxpayers for generations to come !!
