PORT AUTHORITY SCHEDULES PUBLIC MEETINGS TO BEGIN PLANNING EFFORT FOR WTC TRANSPORTATION HUB - MEDIA ADVISORY

Date: Sep 25, 2003
Press Release Number: 127-2003

Sessions in Jersey City and Manhattan Will Begin Environmental Review Process for Proposed World-Class Transportation Facility


The Port Authority has scheduled two public meetings to begin the environmental review process for the World Trade Center Transportation Hub, a project being developed in cooperation with the Federal Transit Administration. This proposal would seamlessly link a Permanent World Trade Center PATH Terminal with New York City subways and ferries.

The meetings will provide the public with an opportunity to comment on various alternatives and issues they believe should be included in the environmental review.

The Port Authority’s proposed transportation hub would include a Permanent World Trade Center PATH Terminal with a track and platform level, a mezzanine level, and access to streets surrounding the World Trade Center site. It also would include underground pedestrian connections to New York City subway stations on the 1/9, N, R, and E lines and possible connections to the 2, 3, 4, 5, J, M, Z, A and C routes at a proposed Fulton Street Transit Center.

The public meetings will begin with a brief presentation, followed by a public comment period. The meeting dates, times and locations are as follows:

Wednesday, October 8, 2003
Hudson County Administration Annex Freeholder’s Chambers
567 Pavonia Avenue, 3rd Floor
Jersey City, N.J.
