Hudson River Railway

The Gateway Development Commission’s (GDC) Board of Commissioners awarded the EUR261.70 million (USD284 million) contract for Hudson River Ground Stabilization (HRGS)  to Weeks Marine Inc from Cranford (New Jersey, USA). The HRGS project marks the first heavy construction contract by GDC on the Hudson Tunnel Project (HTP): it’s an important component of the new tunnel project. A mix of soil, concrete, and water will be injected to stabilize the riverbed in 365.76 m (1,200 feet) of the shallow area on the Manhattan side of the Hudson River. This work will ensure the TBM can excavate the new tunnel while protecting the riverbed from disruption. Visit https://www.gatewayprogram.org/. Ref.n. GDC23-003. 09/24.
