Hudson Yards Tunnels | Hudson Yards Tubes
The towers that make up Hudson Yards on Manhattan’s far west side are rising fast. But underground, things are quieter. Two key pieces of infrastructure — tubes that would link a new tunnel under the Hudson River to Pennsylvania Station — have run out of funding.
“We can’t afford to punt any longer,” Representative Josh Gottheimer, a Democrat from New Jersey, told the New York Times. “That’s frankly why I’m here. You see what’s going on in the ‘summer of hell.’ People are experiencing what’s going to go on when you have 100-year-old tunnels and equipment breaking.”
Work on the project came to a stop after the federal Department of Transportation pulled out of the development in the latest sign that the Trump administration is losing interest in a $23.9 billion infrastructure project considered vital to New York City and New Jersey.
