Statement by Amtrak CEO Stephen Gardner

“Completing the last phase of the Concrete Casing kicks us into high gear on the Hudson Tunnel Project.  The new tunnel is essential to the future of the region and the nation, and will improve the customer experience for millions, create career opportunities for thousands, and help us fight climate change.  We thank President Biden, Secretary Buttigieg, Senator Schumer, Governors Hochul and Murphy, Congress, and our Mega Grant co-applicants, NJ TRANSIT and the Gateway Development Commission, for their support of Amtrak and one of the most critical infrastructure projects in America,” said Amtrak CEO Stephen Gardner.
