NJ Transit opens renovated coastal station, contributes to Sept. 11 fund

New Jersey Transit recently dedicated its newly refurbished Hazlet Station, located on the north New Jersey coast line.

The $6.1 million facility includes expanded parking, two 800-foot high-level platforms, heated shelters and overhead canopies, and improved pedestrian access and lighting.

The project benefited Hazlet Township’s Sept. 11th memorial — NJ Transit dismantled a chimney in the original parking lot, and gave the bricks to Hazlet to help raise money for the fund. Seven Hazlet residents died in the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks.
