transhudson-tunnelNew Jersey officials are set to sink the first shovel into the nation’s largest transportation project, another tunnel linking the state to New York City. Today’s groundbreaking ceremony will kick off construction of a third tunnel under the Hudson River, an $8.7 billion project that’s expected to be completed in 2017. The new link will be dedicated to carrying commuter rail traffic between northern New Jersey and Manhattan, permitting an exponential expansion in direct rail routes and doubling commuter rail capacity.

Gov. Jon Corzine headlines the group of state, local and regional officials who are expected to attend the ceremony, which will be held next to the tunnel’s future entrance in North Bergen.
