Trump’s First Budget May Stall the Massive Gateway Program

NJ Spotlight (via NewsWorks) reports, “Work on a key bridge that’s part of the ambitious Gateway plan to build two new rail tunnels under the Hudson River is supposed to begin this year. But whether that will happen seems up in the air” based on the Trump administration budget outline released last week, which. according to the article, indicates the president’s intent to freeze federal grants for projects (like Gateway) that are not completely funded. The news website calls this “an apparent reversal by the Republican president on the issue of infrastructure.”
