Environmental Impact Statement

The Federal Railroad Administration (FRA), as the lead agency, prepared an Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) evaluating the Hudson Tunnel Project (the Project) pursuant to the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 (NEPA). NJ TRANSIT and the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey (PANYNJ) were joint lead agencies in the development of the EIS. The Federal Transit Administration and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers were cooperating agencies. FRA coordinated compliance with Section 106 of the National Historic Preservation Act (Section 106) with the NEPA process.

The Hudson Tunnel Project is one component of the Gateway Program. Amtrak, NJ TRANSIT, and the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey are working with other project partners, including the Gateway Development Commission and the states of New York and New Jersey, to advance other components of the Gateway Program.
