Related, Amtrak break ground on Hudson Yards rail tunnel

Construction has started on an 800-foot Amtrak rail tunnel under the Related Companies’ Hudson Yards project.

The Federal Department of Transportation shelled out $185 million toward a concrete box that someday might serve to connect New Jersey and New York Penn Station via train service. After Amtrak engineers found that any new tunnel to Penn Station would have to pass through Hudson Yards, Related and Oxford Properties Group agreed to alter construction plans to make room for the box between 10th and 11th avenues. The tunnel is slated for completion by October 2015.

“We’re celebrating, today, the groundbreaking of building this box,” said Jerrold Nadler, congressman for the 10th District, at the ceremony yesterday, according to DNAinfo. “We’ll put the specifics of the tunnel in later, when we get the money to do that.” [DNAinfo]Mark Maurer
