Regional Transportation Projects
NJ TRANSIT/Port Authority of New York & New Jersey (PANYNJ) Access to the Region’s Core (ARC) Draft Environmental Impact Statement (DEIS) and Final Environmental Impact Statement (FEIS).
Today’s century–old passenger rail system under the Hudson River, which connects New York and New Jersey has reached its capacity, and serves as a bottleneck that affects the region’s mobility, health and economic future. The ARC project will break this bottleneck with the construction of THE TUNNEL
NJ TRANSIT, in partnership with the PANYNJ, prepared a DEIS and FEIS to evaluate alternatives that increase transit capacity across the Hudson River to meet the growing demand for travel between midtown Manhattan and west-of-Hudson points in New Jersey and New York.
NJ TRANSIT Hudson-Bergen Light Rail Route 440 Extension Alternatives Analysis
The City of Jersey City is planning for significant growth along its western waterfront. Planning efforts undertaken to date have identified extension of the existing Hudson-Bergen Light Rail (HBLR) system to serve these growth areas as a critical component of future plans for the area. The success and pace of this development is dependent on new or enhanced transit service that establishes a convenient connection between the Hackensack River waterfront and the transit service available on the HBLR system in the interior of the study area.
The HBLR Route 440 Extension Alternatives Analysis will consider alternatives to improve mobility for existing and future residents of the western waterfront area by providing convenient connections between the existing HBLR West Side Avenue Station and points west of Route 440.
The Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) and PANYNJ are proposing to prepare Tier I of the Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) to evaluate alternatives to enhance the movement of freight across New York Harbor. Given the existing system, forecasted increases in freight demand translate directly into increased truck traffic in the freight distribution network. The region’s ability to serve its markets is increasingly threatened by its heavy reliance on trucking goods over an ageing and congested roadway network, while non-highway freight modes, particularly rail and waterborne, remain underdeveloped and underutilized.
