“Repairing and strengthening the Hudson River tunnels, which were severely damaged during Superstorm Sandy, is critical to New York and the Northeast economies.  I am thankful for the Biden administration’s commitment to pushing this project forward by releasing the Environmental Impact Statement, which will allow officials to proceed with the next steps of acquiring the necessary property and advancing design work. This is a major milestone and I stand ready to help move this project forward.”
