AP: Amtrak in Talks to Consider Taking Over Killed Tunnel Project

"The ARC tunnel project killed last month may be taken over by Amtrak, which was excluded from original plan. Plans as of now are 'exploratory,' officials say."

I hope Amtrak picks ARC up, I feel it's needed for the NEC and to boost commuting volume between NYC and Jersey/PA.


  • In its current form, the stub-end ARC Tunnel is of no use to Amtrak, but if the plan can be modified to connect to Farley station and the existing NEC, that would be a whole other matter. One can only hope they get this built now rather than waiting for another few decades.
