Question of the Day
“We don’t have alternate work to put these people on,” said Mr. Nardolillo, whose firm handled environmental permits and data management for property acquisition. “This is the one job you counted on. It’ll have a devastating impact on the region.”
Commuters at New York’s Penn Station weren’t pleased to hear the project had been canceled.
“This is not good. I hope they reconsider,” said Michael Murphy, an intelligence-technology and infrastructure expert waiting for a train home to Morristown, N.J. But, he added, “if they have a problem with the budget, there’s not much choice.”
Roy Gainsburg, a retired book publisher from South Orange, N.J., who still rides into the city occasionally, said commuter trains frequently get stuck in the tunnel.
“It certainly would be nice if there was another tunnel, because this one has only two tracks, so trains get stuck at peak hours,” he said.
So far, about $600 million has been spent on the tunnel project. New Jersey could be on the hook to repay half of that to the federal government for breaking its commitment.
