Christie: I'll Meet With Cuomo, Feds on Hudson Rail Tunnel

Gov. Christie says he'll likely meet with Gov. Cuomo and federal transportation officials soon to discuss plans for new Hudson River rail tunnels.

He made the comments in New Hampshire Tuesday where he's campaigning for the Republican nomination for president.

Transportation Secretary Anthony Foxx wrote to Christie and Cuomo Monday after trains were delayed into Manhattan on five out of six weekdays.

Amtrak owns the tracks and equipment, but New Jersey Transit commuters endure the brunt of delays because they use the same tracks.

Christie canceled a tunnel project in 2010 over concerns that New Jersey would be responsible for cost overruns. He said last week if he's elected president he'll get a new tunnel built if both states and the federal government are equal partners.
