Governor Phil Murphy

Statement by Governor Murphy on Major Gateway Project Milestone


“The Biden Administration’s announcement of the impending May completion date for the Hudson Tunnel Project’s Final Environmental Impact Statement and Record of Decision is a major step towards relief for New Jersey commuters. After years of stalled efforts under the Trump Administration, President Biden, Secretary Buttigieg, Acting FTA Administrator Fernandez, and Acting FRA Administrator Bose are making it clear that the Gateway Program and all of its components are a critical part of our nation’s infrastructure. Our administration has fought for new and safe tunnels since 2018 and we look forward to working with our regional and federal partners to build commuting and rail infrastructure that our commuters can depend on.”

The updated status of the project can be viewed on the federal permitting dashboard website.
