NJ Transit to improve traffic flow along Pascack Valley line



Yesterday, officials from New Jersey Transit and municipalities along the Pascack Valley Line reached an agreement to relieve traffic congestion near several train stations.

NJ Transit will change locations where trains stop at stations to improve traffic flow at grade crossings.

The municipalities and NJ Transit also reached an agreement to construct four passing tracks along the alignment so the agency can provide bi-directional and off-peak service along the line. The tracks will be installed in Rutherford, Hasbrouck Heights, Hackensack and Nanuet.

In addition, the passing track project will enable NJ Transit to provide rail service to the Meadowlands sports and entertainment complex via a rail spur that will connect to the Pascack Valley Line. The agency expects to launch service to the Meadowlands, as well as bi-directional, off-peak and weekend service on the Pascack line, in late 2007.
