New Jersey Transit and the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey have approved a study for the $8 billion Trans-Hudson Express Tunnel (THE Tunnel), which will double commuter rail capacity between New York and New Jersey.
The project includes a state-of-the-art, two-track tunnel under the Hudson River and a new rail terminal under 34th Street adjacent to the current Penn Station. The program also includes new track capacity on the Northeast Corridor and a connection to rail lines serving residents of Rockland, Orange, Bergen, Passaic, and several other counties, providing a one-seat ride and more trains to and from Manhattan.
As a subconsultant, DiGeronimo Architects is providing architectural design services to support the project’s engineers, including 3-D design visualization and animations. The project is currently in pre-design stage.
