NJ Transit to build station in Mount Arlington



Yesterday, the New Jersey Transit board approved constructing a station in Mount Arlington.

The $12.1 million station will be used by trains on the Montclair-Boonton and Morristown lines, and serve customers traveling to Hoboken Terminal, where they can transfer to buses, Port Authority Trans-Hudson trains and trans-Hudson ferries.

The fully accessible facility will feature heated waiting shelters on the inbound platform, two high-level platforms, a pedestrian underpass, and public address and passenger communication systems. As part of the project, NJ Transit will reconfigure an existing park-and-ride lot to add 57 spaces.

Construction is expected to begin in summer and be complete by 2007’s end.

The station will attract people who currently drive along the congested Interstate 80 corridor, NJ Transit officials believe.
