U.S. Senator Bob Menendez (D-NJ), along with U.S. Reps. Albio Sires (D-8) and  Bill Pascrell (D-9) are leading the New Jersey delegation in urging the U.S. Department of Transportation to move forward with the Hudson Tunnel project.

...

“The New Jersey delegation has been demanding for a long time to get the Hudson River Tunnels repaired and upgraded for the 21st century,” Pascrell added in a statement.
“I’m proud to continue to lead in this fight with Congressman Sires. We cannot let shutdowns and administrative delays get in the way of advancing the ball on this critical project.”
Menendez added that “we’re sitting on a transportation ticking time bomb” and it’s long overdue for the DOT to take action.
