Cuomo on Tuesday said he wants to spend $5 million on a state study that would look at whether a tunnel from Long Island to either Westchester County, the Bronx or Connecticut is financially and practically feasible, saying it has the potential to allow commuters from the island to bypass Manhattan.
"I want to a really thorough feasibility study," Cuomo said at an event on Long Island. "I think we can build a tunnel from Long Island to either the Bronx, Westchester or Connecticut. It will shave hours and hours from a commutation standpoint."
