NJ Transit approves $22.9 million in viaduct repairs


New Jersey Transit recently awarded a $22.9 million contract to E.E. Cruz & Co. to repair and waterproof 80-year-old viaducts at the agency’s Brick Church, South Orange and East Orange stations on the Morris & Essex Line.

Expected to begin in spring and conclude in 2006, the project includes demolishing and re-building exterior stairs, repairing viaducts, waterproofing structures, and improving track-bed and platform drainage.

Repairs will begin at Brick Church Station; work on the South Orange and East Orange stations will begin once ADA-accessibility improvements are complete, including mini high-level platforms, elevators for inbound and outbound trains service, and reconstructed platforms and canopy extensions.

The Morris & Essex Line is the agency’s second busiest, so NJ Transit plans to coordinate construction to minimize passenger impacts, according to a prepared statement.
