Governor Chris Christie Issues Statement after Meeting with U.S. Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood

Trenton, NJ – 
Governor Chris Christie issued the following statement today regarding his meeting with U.S. Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood: 
“The fact that the ARC project is not financially viable and is expected to dramatically exceed its current budget remains unchanged.  However, this afternoon Secretary LaHood presented several options to potentially salvage a trans Hudson tunnel project.  At the Secretary’s request, I’ve agreed to have Executive Director of NJ Transit Jim Weinstein and members from his team work with U.S. Department of Transportation staff to study those options over the next two weeks.”
