Proposal to build new underground PABT near 11th Ave.

Nov. 11, 2020

Could the Port Authority NY/NJ Bus Terminal be rebuilt entirely underground? A $15 billion proposal, not available before to the public, is being offered by engineering firm AECOM, as one of three proposals being considered. The underground terminal would have separate tunnels feeding in/out of the Lincoln Tunnel; it would be closer to the Javits Center on land already owned by NYC.
