New Jersey Transit yesterday broke ground on the Perth Amboy Station, which is set to receive a $45.5 million upgrade.

Renovations will include two new high-level platforms, four new elevators and additional ramps and stairs to provide better platform access. Once construction is complete, the station will meet Americans with Disabilities Act requirements. The project is expected to conclude by mid-2024, NJ Transit officials said in a press release.

Hall Construction Co. was awarded the construction contract in November. The company will preserve the station’s distinctive design elements from when it was built in 1927.

NJ Transit President and CEO Kevin Corbett was joined by New Jersey Gov. Phil Murphy and other state and local officials at the groundbreaking ceremony.

"The renovations to this historical train station represent my administration’s ongoing commitment to investing in our public transportation infrastructure," said Murphy. "As commuters once again return to the trains they relied upon pre-pandemic to get to work or school, they must have confidence in the safety, comfort, and reliability of NJ Transit."
