The Port Authority Transit Corp. (PATCO) earlier this month completed installation of a new elevator at Haddonfield Station in New Jersey, as part of a larger $31 million project to install elevators at all PATCO rail stations. 

Over the next two years, PATCO will install one elevator each at the Ashland, Westmont and Collingswood stations, and two elevators each at the City Hall and 12/13th & Locust stations.

When the project is completed in 2022, all 13 PATCO stations will be fully accessible to individuals using wheelchairs, strollers and bicycles, PATCO official said in a press release.
