The Port Authority Trans-Hudson Corp. (PATH) last week reopened the World Trade Center (WTC) Station for weekend service in New York City.

The WTC Station has been closed on weekends since January 2019 to facilitate work on the tunnels below the Hudson River connecting the WTC and Exchange Place stations. The tunnels were damaged by saltwater flooding during Hurricane Sandy in 2012.

PATH reopened the station for weekend service six months ahead of schedule due to PATH engineers and contractors streamlining construction schedules, conducting weekly work assessments and maximizing its workforce, PATH officials said in a press release. 

Tunnel repairs included the replacement of track, third rail, electrical, signal and communications infrastructure.

One side of the tunnel remains closed for repairs.
