‘Still Wrong For Western Queens’

\Cross Harbor Freight Project:

Assembly Member Catherine Nolan, who has previously written to the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey and the Federal Highway Administration, expressing her opposition to the Cross Harbor Tunnel Project released the following statement.

“I remain extremely concerned about any proposal to build a cross harbor tunnel and additional freight train and truck traffic to western Queens,” said Assembly Member Catherine Nolan. “I respectfully urge the Port Authority to come up with an alternative plan that reduces congestion, the production of greenhouse gases, upgrades our infrastructure and ensures that the quality of life for our local community is not seriously diminished. Our western Queens communities deserve consideration. I share the concerns expressed by civic groups and Congresswoman Grace Meng as well.”
