ORIENTATION: Two spectacular panoramas appear and disappear. Intermittently blocked, elusive horizontal vistas peak out in tall slivers down the side streets.
Under a public-private partnership between New Jersey Transit and Washington Group’s 21st CenturyRail Corporation, a light rail transit line is being constructed between Bayonne and Ridgefield via Jersey City, Hoboken, Weehawken, and North Bergen. The Weehawken Tunnel Project consists of the rehabilitation of a 1,275m long, 7m wide excavated tunnel from a double-track freight rail to a double-track light rail system. The project includes a large underground station cavern, a 12m diameter elevator shaft, and extensive portal slope stabilization and drainage measures.
