Engel Statement on the State Abandoning Plans for a Tunnel From Westchester to Long Island

Congressman Eliot L. Engel issued the following statement:

“I am pleased our opposition was heard and the State has listened to the voice of the people, who were clear in their disapproval of this ill-fated plan. We need to maintain the integrity of Rye and our Sound Shore communities, which would have been adversely affected by any transportation project that heavily increased traffic flow in the area. While we certainly need to invest in our crumbling national infrastructure, it must be done in a more thoughtful way.”
