The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey (PANYNJ) has begun holding public hearings on its proposed Port Authority Trans Hudson (PATH) extension to Newark Liberty International Airport.

The agency has proposed extending PATH's Newark-to-World Trade Center Line from its current terminus at Newark Penn Station to an existing rail station at the Newark airport. The airport station serves as a transfer point on the Northeast Corridor for New Jersey Transit, Amtrak and the airport's monorail system.

The first hearing took place yesterday, while a second meeting has been scheduled for Thursday. At the meetings, members of the public may view project plans and submit comments.

The extension is expected to cost $1.7 billion. Earlier this year, PANYNJ's board authorized $57 million in planning funds for the first phase of the PATH extension to the Newark airport.
