Governor Andrew Cuomo has sent a video of the Gateway Tunnel to President Trump, after visiting the tunnel to see the corrosion and damage up close.
The damage was caused by Hurricane Sandy when both tubes in the North River Tunnel were flooded with seawater. That caused falling concrete, corroded electrical cabling and standing water damage. Further complicating the matter is the tunnel’s age.
Cuomo is calling on President Trump to fund the federal government’s share of the tunnel plans. He said it’s the most urgent major infrastructure project in the nation.
