New York City tunnel to be biggest in U.S.

NORTH BERGEN, N.J.

Officials are launching America’s largest transportation project — a third tunnel into New York City that’s expected to generate 6,000 construction jobs and be completed by 2017.

The project was launched at a ceremony Monday in northern New Jersey. It will be burrowed under the Hudson River and will speed the commute from New Jersey to New York City.

Federal Transit Administration chief Peter Rogoff says the rail tunnel is the largest ever funded by his agency. The Obama administration will provide US$3 billion toward the $8.7 billion project.
