Construction Plans for Hudson River Railway Change
In a move that affects travelers in the New York City area, state transportation officials decided to drop plans to extend a proposed Hudson River rail tunnel to Manhattan’s Grand Central Terminal.

According to reports in USA Today, transportation officials will now place their efforts on building the tunnel to Penn Station in New York. The project is crucial to travel in the area because the state’s railway system is already overwhelmed. Transportation representatives said the plans changed because the project would be in jeopardy if it became too involved.

The tunnel is expected to take more than ten years to complete and should increase transit capacity by 70,000 seats.
