Gateway project

"We haven't had a federal investment like this in decades."
Cuomo prided himself on building things that would outlast him; bridges, airports, train stations. But he also lorded over matters that affect the commute for millions of New Yorkers.
The project to replace and repair the Hudson River train tunnels is poised to move forward but can’t until Governor Cuomo commits to the state’s share of funding.
The plan earmarks $620 billion for big transit projects, many of which could be in the New York City region, that have been long neglected or never fully funded.
Nevertheless, both politicians painted Wednesday's meeting as easy-going and productive.
'That's your Hudson River Tunnel,' he exclaimed, pulling a rusty piece of metal from the track bed.
Any delay in the review process could increase the cost of the project by billions, a report says.
"A month's delay on the tunnel project is $80 million in additional costs."
