Starting yesterday, live images of the project site will be accessible on the Gateway Development Commission website, providing daily updates of construction progress. GDC will also release periodic ‘time lapse’ footage during construction.

“The installation of the EarthCam at the Tonnelle Avenue Project is an important part of meeting our responsibilities to the public. We are excited to offer this window into our work and look forward to continued collaboration with all stakeholders as we advance the vital Hudson Tunnel Project,” New York GDC Commissioner and Co-Chair Alicia Glen, New Jersey GDC Commissioner and Co-Chair Balpreet Grewal-Virk, and GDC Amtrak Commissioner and Vice Chair Tony Coscia said in a joint statement.

The Tonnelle Avenue Bridge and Utility Relocation Project is a major early work component of the Hudson Tunnel Project involving the relocation of utilities and the construction of a new roadway bridge for Tonnelle Avenue in North Bergen.

This project will allow for a connection to the new tunnel portal at the western slope of the New Jersey Palisades, provide construction access between the staging sites on either side of Tonnelle Avenue, and enable access to the entry point for the Tunnel Boring Machines that will dig the Palisades Tunnel portion of the project.

“Introducing the EarthCam at the Tonnelle Avenue site underscores our dedication to ‘showing our work’ as we advance this nation’s most urgent infrastructure project,” added GDC CEO Kris Kolluri.

“These photos and videos will ensure members of the community stay up to speed on our progress every step of the way while creating a historical record of this project that will serve the region for decades to come.”

Work launched on the Tonnelle Avenue Project in November 2023, with local, state, and federal officials on hand for the groundbreaking, marking the start of construction on the Hudson Tunnel Project in New Jersey, and is expected to conclude by fall of 2025.

Back in June, the U.S. Department of Transportation announced a $25 million grant for the endeavor.

  1. I’m so glad we’re finally making progress on this after so many years of Republican obstruction. We’re still behind on being globally competitive on our national infrastructure and there’s much to be done, but people really need to stop worrying about transgender athletes and foreign wars for a bit so we can finally focus on the priorities that will keep us globally competitive as well as tackle climate change issues! Forward NJ!
