Since 2018, the NJ TRANSIT has advanced more than $4 billion in projects that are either underway or about to happen.

Construction has begun on a new Elizabeth Station where $70 million is going toward new buildings, restoration of the pedestrian tunnel, and rebuilding high-level platforms.

According to northjersey.com, “The Trenton Transit Center received an $18.3 million grant to complete upgrades like rehabilitating island platforms, building ADA-compliant accessible platforms and restoring canopies. Construction will also begin on Perth Amboy station where $47 million will go into an accessibility improvement project including high-level platforms with canopies. When the project is completed, there will be elevators between the street and platform levels, and upgrades to customer communication systems.

A construction contract for a new Lyndhurst station has been awarded. Camden’s Walter Rand Transportation Center will get a $250 million to accommodate the development and renaissance of the city of Camden itself. Historic Newark Penn Station, will receive a $190 million upgrade as well.

NJ TRANSIT has also set its sights on improving safety on bridges and tunnels for its trains and buses.”
