The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey Board of Commissioners has authorized the World Trade Center Transportation Hub project. The design is broadly unchanged from the initial proposals but with a few refinements. This clears the way for a September 6 groundbreaking on a project that will reconnect and expand links between the PATH rapid-transit system, all downtown subway lines and the World Financial Center Ferry Terminal via underground passageways. The Federal Transit Administration has committed approximately $1.92 billion towards the $2.21 billion project. New York Governor George E. Pataki said, “It will provide an emotional lift for Lower Manhattan and will help boost the region’s economy with total economic activity projected at $3.7 billion.”
