The Port Authority Transit Corp. (PATCO) last week received the New Jersey Alliance for Action's Leading Infrastructure Project award for the transit agency’s rail station accessibly improvements.

The award recognizes PATCO’s $38 million project to install elevators at all its rail stations. 

Upon project completion in 2022, all 13 PATCO stations will be fully accessible to individuals with disabilities and those using wheelchairs, strollers and bicycles.

The Leading Infrastructure Project award highlights innovative, pioneering and landmark construction initiatives that “greatly impact New Jersey’s economy,” PATCO officials said in a press release.

NJ Alliance For Action is a nonprofit focusing on infrastructure and economic growth in New Jersey.
