The best way to substantially reduce congestion on our central business district streets and limited-access highways is finally to build the rail freight tunnel under New York Harbor connecting New Jersey to Brooklyn’s Bay Ridge Branch and the Amtrak line along the New York and New England coast.
In fact, the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey was originally created in 1921 to build the freight tunnel, but automobiles, bridges and tunnels took over during the last century.
Various studies have shown the project’s paperwork almost to completion as it awaits a record of decision. We have waited long enough! Now is the time to build the tunnel, especially since a substantial share of trucks clog the flow of traffic.
The route is the key to improving freight and traffic flow.
