Historic NJ Transit station to be restored

New Jersey Transit May 15 awarded a $2.3 million contract to Watertrol Inc. to renovate the historic Madison Station on NJ Transit’s Morristown Line.

"This project helps to preserve history and delivers an improved facility for the more than 1,400 riders who travel through the station each day," said NJ Transit Board Chairman and State Transportation Commissioner Jamie Fox in a prepared statement.

Madison Station was built in 1916 by Delaware, Lackawanna and Western Railroad. Plans include adding a bathroom facility that meets Americans with Disabilities Act, restoring retail space (which currently houses a newsstand and taxi service), repairing the roof, restoring the exterior with concrete, and improving platforms and walkways.

The State Transportation Trust Fund is funding the project.
