NEWARK, N.J. — The trans-Hudson rail tunnel killed by Gov. Chris Christie will end up costing roughly $600 million even after a refund from insurers, according to The Record.
Data tabulated by NJ Transit and released on Friday show that a net of $591.4 million was spent on the project from its formal inception in the summer of 2006 through August 31. Only $22.8 million — or about 3 percent of the project total — was spent on actual construction, NJ Transit said. For the full story, click here.
