New Jersey Transit yesterday closed sections of the Elizabeth Station on the Northeast corridor in Elizabeth, New Jersey, and announced it will begin platform extension construction at the station later this fall. 

In addition to building a longer platform to accommodate 12-car trains, the $71 million station modernization project calls for constructing new station buildings, improving access per the Americans with Disabilities Act and upgrading security and communications systems, NJ Transit officials said in a press release.

Construction of the entire project is scheduled to finish in 2022. Trains will remain accessible via open areas on the platforms during construction, officials said.

Anselmi & DeCicco will handle design and construction of the project, while WSP USA Inc. will provide construction management services.
