THE GATEWAY PROGRAM
Gateway is the most urgent transportation infrastructure program in the country. Currently focused on the Portal North Bridge and Hudson Tunnel Projects, the Gateway Program will preserve and expand reliable, resilient and safe Northeast Corridor rail capacity between New York City, New Jersey, and the entire Northeast Corridor. The current projects call for replacing an increasingly failing 107-year-old one-track in, one-track out bridge and tunnel with a new 2.3 mile Portal North tracks and bridge, and a two-track tunnel and rehabilitation of the existing tubes under the Hudson, in the busiest section of the Northeast Corridor, playing host to 450 trains per day, supporting more than 200,000 daily passenger trips and linking to 10% of the nation’s GDP.

AIRGLADES INTERNATIONAL REDEVELOPMENT PROGRAM
Airglades International Airport is an airport development project located on the site of the existing county-owned Airglades Airport, in Clewiston, Florida. It is proposed that the site be developed into an integrated freight logistics hub to capitalize on the trade in cut flowers, fish and other perishables flowing between the US and Central and South America. Currently, this is all channelled through Miami International Airport. The project is jointly owned by three parties: Florida Fresh Produce (49%) (aka Florida Cargo Fresh); while the remaining 51% is split between US Sugar Corporation and Hilliard Brothers, a diversified agricultural operation. Airglades International and Hendry County selected AvPORTS as the airport operator and Star America as a private investor and equity partner.

NORTHEAST MAGLEV
The Northeast Corridor is home to 17% of the US population and 20% of US jobs—all on a land area that represents just 2% of the United States. Travel between the major cities of the Northeast Corridor is predicted to increase by 115% by 2040. If we do not bring advanced transportation technology and new ways of thinking about transportation to the corridor, delays will only become worse.
