Cross Harbor Freight Program Tier II Study
As part of the Cross Harbor Partners joint venture, STV is preparing a Tier II study on behalf of the Port Authority of New York & New Jersey (PANYNJ) for the Cross Harbor Freight program. This transformative initiative aims to induce a modal shift away from trucks to reduce vehicles mile traveled and the attendant wear and tear on our region’s roadways and bridges.
The Tier II Environmental Impact Statement will be a detailed analysis of the environmental effects and potential mitigation measures for two preferred alternatives: a dedicated rail freight tunnel between New York and New Jersey, and the expansion of the PANYNJ’s existing railcar float operation.
