The future of our region’s mobility depends on greater connectivity, accessibility, and service

The existing Portal Bridge, a two-track, railroad swing-type drawbridge, which crosses the Hackensack River in New Jersey, was built in 1910 as part of the Pennsylvania Railroad's extension from New Jersey to Manhattan. The bridge is a vital element of the Northeast Corridor (NEC) —the most heavily used passenger rail line in the United States, both in terms of ridership and service frequency. The NEC extends from Washington, D.C. in the south to Boston, Massachusetts in the north, in the densely populated northeast region, with stops in eight states and Washington, D.C., including PSNY in New York City.
