Opposition to Deep-Cavern Terminal Grows

New Jersey opinion leaders are joining the Lackawanna Coalition and other rider advocates in opposing the proposed deep-cavern terminal that would be built 20 stories below Manhattan’s 34th Street as part of the Access to the Region’s Core (ARC) Project.  Columnists Paul Mulshine of the Star-Ledger and Bob Ingle of the Asbury Park Press have written in opposition to the proposed terminal; Mulshine likened it to the “Big Dig”, a highway project in Boston legendary for its cost overruns.  Jeff Tittel, Chairperson of the New Jersey Chapter of the Sierra Club, has dubbed the riders who would be taken into the proposed dead-end deep cavern terminal the “riders of the lost ARC”.
