The two passenger railway tubes were completed and opened in 1908. Their construction was overseen by William M'Adoo, President of the Hudson and Manhattan Railroad Company who later went on to become Secretary of the Treasury under President Wilson from 1913-1918 and Director of the United States Railroad Administration (USRA) from 1917-1918.
