Video from Governor Cuomo to President Trump Exposing the Corrosion and Damage at the Gateway Tunnel is Available Here


Last month, Governor Cuomo toured the Gateway Tunnel and sent a video to President Trump exposing its corrosion and damage and the need to fully fund the Gateway Tunnel Project.

"The Federal Government poses many challenges for the State of New York but one of the top priorities is to replace the Gateway tunnels. These tunnels are Federally owned by the Amtrak Corporation and must be replaced. If only one of the two 100 year old tunnels becomes unusable it would pose a serious economic hardship for New York City and the entire Northeast corridor. We have had numerous conversations with Federal officials about these tunnels and had a framework agreement with the Obama administration which was stopped by the Trump administration. I recently sent a video of the tunnels that fully explains the situation to President Trump. The video shows the decay inside the tunnel. I spoke to the President after he received the video and we have a tentative meeting scheduled for tomorrow with the President to continue to discuss the tunnel project. This is not a partisan issue but a practical government necessity."
