Gateway Program Development Corporation Releases Request for Information for Hudson Tunnel Project

Private sector & industry engagement seeks innovative project delivery, procurement and financing strategies


The Gateway Program Development Corporation (GDC) has issued a Request for Information (RFI), seeking innovative ideas from private sector leaders to help inform planning for the procurement and delivery, including potential design, construction and financing solutions, of the Hudson Tunnel Project and the final section of the Hudson Yards Concrete Casing.

The Hudson Tunnel Project and final section of the Hudson Yards Concrete Casing comprise Phase 1B of the Gateway Program, the most urgent infrastructure program in the country. The Hudson Tunnel Project includes the construction of a new two-track Hudson River rail tunnel from New Jersey to Manhattan that will directly serve Penn Station New York (PSNY), and the rehabilitation of the 106-year old, existing North River Tunnel, which was heavily damaged during Superstorm Sandy in 2012. The final section of the Hudson Yards Concrete Casing completes a project to preserve the right of way for a future tunnel to PSNY.

The Gateway Program is a comprehensive rail investment program that would improve current services, add resiliency and create new capacity for a critical section of the Northeast Corridor (NEC) – the most heavily used passenger rail line in the country.
