No tunnel is a mistake

It looks like the governor may kill the Hudson River Tunnel a second time — this time for good

All I can say is that this is good politics at the moment, but bad long-term for the state. I am surprised at what seems to be a short-sighted view.

    Any recommendations where the governor should find the $1 – 5B extra that it is now will be needed to complete the project? Don’t forget, the transportation trust fund is busted.

    NJ should work with Amtrak and MetroNorth to build a real tunnel to Penn Station and then on to Grand Central, which was the original promise of the Access to the Regional Core (ARC).

    And we should demand that NY state, and NYC, which will be HUGE beneficiaries of this project also pay, their “fair share,” and accept some of the risk of cost overruns since most of the money will be spent in their jurisdiction.

    How can you buy a mercedes auto if you can not afford it? DO you honestly believe that we are in good financial shape? Credit cards are good until you have to pay them.
