Focus on Hudson Tunnel Project

Marie Corrado, Amtrak’s Senior Director of the Gateway Program, will give an overview of the purpose, project elements, status, funding and financing of the overall Gateway Program – the multi-billion dollar suite of passenger rail projects between Newark, New Jersey and Penn Station New York that will eliminate deteriorating, century-old infrastructure and, ultimately, double rail capacity on what is already the busiest section of Amtrak’s Northeast Corridor.
Mohammed Nasim, Amtrak’s Senior Director of Gateway Program engineering, will zoom in on the Hudson Tunnel Project – called by many the most urgent infrastructure project in America – and will describe the current state of engineering and contracting details, challenges, risks and opportunities.
