At the Regional Plan Association Centennial Assembly at Chelsea Piers, New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy and New York Governor Kathy Hochul today jointly announced the nomination of Kris Kolluri as the Chief Executive Officer of the Gateway Development Commission, a partnership between New York, New Jersey and Amtrak that coordinates delivery of the Gateway Program with its partner agencies, including the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey and NJ TRANSIT. The Gateway Program—which includes the redevelopment of the Portal North Bridge and a new Hudson River tunnel—is one of the nation’s most pressing infrastructure needs.
Kolluri served as the Commissioner of the New Jersey Department of Transportation (DOT) from January 2006 until December 2008.
