The Gateway Project: Why You Should Care

Monday, April 29, 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

| Free

Ingrid Reed moderates a panel discussion about what the regional impact would be if one or both train tunnels under the Hudson River were closed for repairs. The tunnels are old, damaged by flooding and inadequate for current and future ridership. The panel will review the findings of  a recently released report, look at the factors that created the problem and present efforts to implement a repair project. As panelists:

Tom Wright, executive director of the Regional Plan Association, Princetonian, planner and teacher, will present the new RPA report, “A Preventable Crisis: The Economic and Human Costs of a Hudson River Rail Tunnel Shutdown;”

John McGoldrick, Princeton resident, commuter, lawyer, corporate executive and member of the original NJ Transit, will provide a context for the critical problem;

Steve Sigmund, director of communications for the Gateway Development Corporation Program, whose hometown is Princeton, will discuss the campaign to implement the long-awaited project.

Ingrid Reed is retired director of the New Jersey Project of Rutgers Eagleton Institute of Politics.
