  • To keep you informed on the latest news regarding the LIA, we are providing you with clips of the most recent media coverage the LIA has received.


  • The LIA Economic Development & Infrastructure Committee invites you to join us for a presentation on the Gateway Program which is a comprehensive rail investment project that would improve reliability, resiliency and redundancy while creating new capacity for a critical section of the Northeast Corridor (NEC) – the most heavily used passenger rail line in the country – a 10 mile stretch of the NEC between Newark, New Jersey and Penn Station in New York City (PSNY).

    This section of the NEC handles approximately 450 trains per day and more than 200,000 daily Amtrak and NJ Transit passenger trips, and directly serves PSNY – the busiest rail station in America. Gateway includes the North River Tunnel under the Hudson River, which has deteriorated due to age, intensive use, and damage sustained from saltwater exposure during Superstorm Sandy in 2012.

    We will hear a presentation from Brian Fritsch who is the Campaign Manager for the Public for Penn and Build Gateway Now coalitions at the Regional Plan Association, as well as Stephen Sigmund who is the Chief of Public Outreach for the Gateway Program Development Corporation.

  • The LIA would like to invite you to tour the East Side Access Project to bring LIRR trains to a new station 160’ below Grand Central. As you know, the LIA is a strong proponent of regional infrastructure projects, such as the double track, third track, LIRR station improvements and east side access, all of which will help strengthen our regional economy and our connectivity to New York City. 

    We are helping to coordinate special VIP Tours for LIA members who are interested in seeing, up close and personal, how this massive undertaking is coming along.  The tour is approximately 2 hours, and will take us 160 feet below Park Ave.  We will be walking through an active construction site to see the new terminal with 8 new tracks and a passenger concourse that together will create the country’s most modern state-of-the-art train station, all completely hidden from public view beneath the streets of NYC.  The scope of work is really breathtaking.
