NJ Transit completes Rutherford Station exterior work, begins interior upgrades


New Jersey Transit recently announced it competed exterior renovations on the historic Rutherford Station and is launching construction on interior restoration work.

In May 2008, the board awarded a $1.4 million contract to DMR Construction Services Inc. for exterior work, including designing and restoring masonry; cleaning brick, sandstone, limestone and bluestone; restoring the copper-clad window enclosure; and repairing and replacing window sills, doors, exterior columns and soffits.

Last month, the board authorized a $988,000 contract with Collette Contracting Inc. to refurbish the station's interior. Expected to be complete in spring 2010, the work includes restoring the main station building's ceiling, floors, windows, doors, wood benches, plaster surfaces, and wood frames and moldings, as well as replacing exterior windows and doors in the taxi stand building.

Interior work on the station — which was built in 1898 — is being funded through $1.9 million in federal dollars.
