Gov. Phil Murphy and other local and transit agency officials marked the groundbreaking for construction of a new, ADA-accessible New Jersey Transit train station in Lyndhurst, New Jersey. 

The new facility will replace a station that's more than a century old and will be located at the intersection of Delafield and Court avenues.

The station is designed to replicate the historic style of the Lyndhurst neighborhood and will include ADA accessible platforms, new stairs, four elevators, lighting, canopies, communications and closed-circuit TV.

An ADA accessible parking lot will be located next to the new station on the property owned by the township under a lease agreement with NJ Transit. Prior to the COVID-19 outbreak, the station — which is located on NJ Transit's Main Line — served an average of 1,000 weekday passenger trips.
