NJ Transit to upgrade Ridgewood Station


New Jersey Transit recently launched a project aimed at improving Ridgewood Station by making the historic facility fully accessible to passengers with disabilities and more convenient for all riders.

The agency will construct a 710-foot-long center island platform and 640-foot-long side platform to replace the three existing low-level platforms. NJ Transit also will add elevators, canopies, stairs, lighting, accessible parking spaces, curb ramps and sidewalks. In addition, the project calls for upgrading restrooms and a ticket window.

The project is scheduled to be complete in 2011. Located on NJ Transit's Main Line, Ridgewood Station serves an average of 1,573 passengers each weekday.
