The Ready to Build campaign showcases five critical investments - including the B&P Tunnel - that are vital to the realization of a renewed, modern passenger rail system.

Built just after the Civil War, the B&P Tunnel is one of the oldest and worst bottlenecks along the Northeast Corridor with sharp curvatures limiting speeds to 30 mph for passenger and freight traffic.

The two-track tunnel will be replaced by a new tunnel with four tubes that will allow for faster, more reliable and more frequent service.
