NEWARK, N.J. — Fixing the 106-year old Hudson River rail tunnels used by tens of thousands of commuters will take longer than originally estimated, Amtrak officials said this week, reported NJ Advance Media.

A multi-faceted plan calling for new Hudson River rail tunnels to be constructed allowing the existing tunnels to be taken out of service to be rehabilitated was supposed to take one year for each one of the old tunnels, but now will take as long as 18 months, the report said.  

The new tunnels are the first part of the the multi-billion dollar Gateway Project, which includes building two new rail tunnels, an annex south of Penn Station, two more rail tracks between Newark and New York, and a replacement for the Portal Bridge in Kearny, according to NJ Advance Media.
