Congratulations to  Amtrak  on receiving key federal approval for the Environmental Impact Study (EIS) for the Gateway Hudson Tunnel project, which is part of the larger Gateway Project, that will allow rehabilitation of the existing 110-year-old tunnels currently used by 450+ Amtrak and  NJ TRANSIT  trains each day. WSP USA is proud to support Amtrak as the lead firm in the Gateway Trans-Hudson Partnership Joint Venture with  AECOM  and  STV  in providing preliminary engineering in support of the NEPA process required to prepare the final EIS and obtain the Record of Decision. “This is a big step for the Northeast and the entire country as these tunnels connect so many people, jobs and businesses,” said Pete Buttigieg, U.S. Transportation Secretary. “This decision is also an important reminder we are still capable of working together to advance ambitious projects together that can make life better for people, connect communities, and deliver a stronger future.” WSP will continue to provide extended preliminary engineering support to advance critical project activities towards the start of construction.
