So! You think that the Federal Government should pay for everything?
Ain't going to happen.
While this is more than 'just a regional project' it is none the less the extended region that must pay for it.
And That ain't going to happen either.
Trains will terminate in Hoboken and passengers can take the ferry to Manhattan while the existing tunnels are refurbished.
This will also require the closing of the Lincoln Tunnel to all traffic other than buses. Which in turn will require the closing of 10th and 11th Avenue between 42nd Street and 39th Street. Since many NJT Buses cannot fit in PABT, 42nd Street will also become a bus only through affair. This in turn will close Willow Avenue in Hoboken to all but buses operating in both directions.
