This time regarding a large transportation project.
Vice President Joe Biden is off track about the nation’s largest transportation project.
When questioned by The Record of Bergen County about the Hudson River rail tunnel during a conference call on Monday, Biden told the New Jersey newspaper the tunnel “is designed to provide for automobile traffic.”
Biden’s office said Tuesday the vice president misheard the question.
Biden’s press secretary, Elizabeth Alexander, says the vice president is a big proponent of rail and worked hard to boost funding for the project.
Officials broke ground on the $8.7 billion project on Monday. (Source: Biden mistaken that cars could use rail tunnel – WBAY)
