What's The [Data] Point? Episode 103 -- 800,000 - New Life for Gateway, with John D. Porcari [You can download What's The [Data] Point? wherever you get your podcasts, including on iTunes]
With President Biden now in office and New York Senator Chuck Schumer as Majority Leader, there is new life for the Gateway Program, a massive set of infrastructure projects for the northeast corridor seen as essential to the region's, and therefore the country's, economic success. After years of delay, there are signs Gateway, which is highlighted by the plan to construct new Hudson River tunnels between New York and New Jersey, will be approved and funded, a combination of federal money and contributions by the two states. Founding interim director of the Gateway Development Corporation, John D. Porcari, joined the show to discuss the project's importance, what's needed to move ahead, and what a realistic timeline is for its completion.
