Trump to Discuss Hudson Tunnel Project With New York and New Jersey Leaders
President Trump has invited top officials from New York and New Jersey to the White House on Thursday, including Senators Chuck Schumer, Cory Booker and Kirsten Gillibrand and Govs. Andrew M. Cuomo and Chris Christie, to discuss the future of a multibillion-dollar tunnel between the two states, according to people familiar with the meeting.
The so-called Gateway project, to build a train tunnel under the Hudson River, is considered the linchpin of transportation infrastructure in the region and a top priority for many officials from the two states. It would provide a critical additional link between New Jersey and New York’s Pennsylvania Station.
In addition to the statewide officials, members of Congress from both states whose districts or residents would be affected have also been invited. . .
