While the issue of building a new rail tunnel under the Hudson River and refurbishing the existing 105-year-old tunnel has gained traction in recent weeks after a series of delays, it is far from the only chokepoint on the 457-mile Northeast corridor between Washington, D.C. and Boston. These include regular delays at the Portal Bridge caused by the 105-year-old swing bridge not closing properly after opening for boats. (AP Photo/Bill Kostroun,file)
