Officials Mark Start of New York Construction on Hudson Tunnel Project

Governor Hochul Joins President Biden to Highlight Federal Investment in the Hudson Tunnel Project

Dignitaries gathered to celebrate the start of construction in New York on the Hudson Tunnel Project and the final phase of the Concrete Casing project.

The Hudson Yards Concrete Casing is an essential rail right-of-way preservation project that will clear the way for the Hudson Tunnel Project’s full construction. The first two sections are complete and run under the block bordered by 10th and 11th Avenues and 30th and 33rd Streets.

Section 3 extends the casing on a diagonal alignment from the western edge of 11th Avenue to 30th Street, where it will connect with the new Hudson River Tunnel, providing access for trains that will use the new Hudson Tunnel into New York Penn Station. This portion of the project is expected to be completed in summer 2026.

In January 2023, President Biden announced that the Hudson Yards Concrete Casing – Section 3 project would receive $292 million through the U.S. Department of Transportation’s Mega Grant Program, which was created under the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act, also known as the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law.

Today’s announcement coincides with the two-year anniversary of the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law, the Biden Administration’s landmark legislation that represents the largest-ever federal investment in public transportation.
