New Jersey Transit is continuing to seek public comment on its plan to expand the Hudson-Bergen light-rail system into Bergen County, N.J.The agency in late April held two public hearings as part of the 60-day comment period on the supplemental draft environmental impact statement for the project. The comment period began March 24.Known as the Northern Branch Corridor, the project calls for extending the Hudson-Bergen system by 10 miles and adding seven new stations. The line would run on West Side Avenue in North Bergen, N.J., and then on existing right-of-way owned by CSX.The extension is projected to provide nearly 25,000 trips on an average weekday. In fiscal-year 2016, the existing Hudson-Bergen system provided 52,000 trips on an average weekday.
