President Joe Biden was on the West Side yesterday to discuss the Hudson River Tunnel Project. Even with the $292m commitment from the Infrastructure Bill, NY Times reporter Patrick McGeehan does not hold out that much hope for the project after the visit.
“There’s still the big question of will this ever happen. President Biden says it will, and Senator Schumer says it will, but we have been down this road before.

It had already lined up its federal funding, and the crews had actually started digging,” McGeehan said this morning.
