NEW YORK (AP) - The Army Corps of Engineers has cleared the way for the construction of a 2.4-acre park on a pier in the Hudson River.

The New York Times reports (https://nyti.ms/1NC2DE7 ) officials said Wednesday that the $130 million project known as Pier 55 won approval from the Army Corps of Engineers and construction could begin as soon as this summer. The project would replace a deteriorating pier in Hudson River Park.

The City Club of New York filed a lawsuit against the Hudson River Trust and an entity of media mogul Barry Diller to block construction of the park in June. But a judge dismissed the lawsuit earlier this month, allowing the project to move forward.

An attorney for City Club says they will appeal the judge’s decision and challenge the permits.
