    Catch all thread to discuss NE transit projects(road, rail, active, etc.).

    Purple line costs have gone up by 1.4billion dollars and opening delayed until 2026. At least it’s still moving forward:

    If there's one thing Biden should get done in his term is that NYC to Delaware section.

    That should be MagLev. Work with Japan and get it done. Makes European trains look slow.

    Truthfully, the entire l.95 corridor should have high speed rail.

    Saw someone fall on the platform earlier this month in NYC, plus my sister told me about a recent case of someone getting pushed/killed off the platform, so we were talking about why isn't there something like this...

    After reviewing subways in UK, Japan, and Korea I became aware of this and can’t believe this wasn’t thought of sooner. It seems like a no brainer like installing barriers on freeways to prevent pedestrians from walking across but we won’t invest more than the bare minimum on trains.

    NJ Turnpike getting widened to six lanes under a $2 billion dollar project taking until 2032. Much needed project to widen much of the rest of the turnpike where the remainder is still 2x2 to 3x3 for roughly 36 miles:

    Also another much needed $5 billion project to widen the road in Jersey City to the Holland Tunnel is in the works:

    NEWARK BAY-HUDSON COUNTY EXTENSION WIDENING AND RECONSTRUCTION
    Location: Hudson and Essex Counties

    Description: The Newark Bay-Hudson County Extension will be reconstructed and widened from two lanes in each direction to three or four between the mainline of the Turnpike at Interchange 14 and the Columbus Drive Exit. Nearly 80 percent of the 8.1-mile Extension is carried on bridge structures. Those structures are nearing the end of their design service lives and now require regular, significant, and costly maintenance. What’s more, traffic growth and substantial port-related heavy truck activity have degraded operating conditions in the corridor. Significant congestion and delays are a daily occurrence and have contributed to the poor condition of the roadway pavement and bridges. This widening and reconstruction program will include the replacement of several bridges, including the Newark Bay Bridge.

    Schedule: Environmental studies and preliminary engineering began in 2021. Final design is expected to begin in 2023. Construction is expected to begin in 2026. The duration of the full program is expected to be 10 to 15 years.

    It would be nice if they could build a network of tolled freeway tunnels under Manhattan similar to what they’re doing in Sydney.
