A $12.4 billion project to replace the Hudson tunnels, which would have more than doubled the number of peak-time runs, to 48 trains per hour, was canceled by New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie in 2010.

When he canceled it in October 2010, Gov. Christie said the price could reach $14 billion, with N.J. responsible for 70% of cost. Investigators found that the cost of the Hudson River rail tunnel project was estimated at $12.4 billion, with the state tabbed to pay 14.4%.
