Create a water taxi service from the Navy Yard to Red Bank/Gloucester City to improve connectivity to South Jersey, and reduce dependence on driving to/from Philadelphia. Could be operated in conjunction with DRPA/DRWC to share costs and revenue.

I studied the plan, and I think that the cost estimates for the extension were far too high due to unnecessary construction methods like tunnel boring machines and NFPA cross-passage tunnels, that would be unnecessary if a cheaper tunneling method was used. Hopefully PIDC will be able to find other consultants that will be able to propose a much cheaper project. Don't be afraid to look overseas!

Between PIDC and the developer, they should have the courage and foresight to reanalyze the shelved SEPTA plan, and recognize ways they can reduce the cost (using cut-and-cover/sequential excavation rather than a tunnel boring machine). They don't have spend $1 billion when other countries do it for much less!

Prioritize the more vulnerable users in the intersection, including pedestrians, people with mobility issues, transit users, and cyclist movements through the intersection so that they have priority over vehicles. This may mean shortening crossings, including bike paths on both sides of the wide street, and eliminating the slip lane for motorists turning onto I95.
