Hudson train tunnel between NY, NJ gets fast environmental review

Oct 14 (Reuters) - U.S. Transportation Secretary Anthony Foxx and other officials on Friday said the federal government would expedite the environmental review for a new train tunnel between New York and New Jersey underneath the Hudson River.

A faster review could save significant money for the $24 billion project. The review process could now take two years or less, compared to many years for past big infrastructure projects. (Reporting by Hilary Russ)
