Temporary PATH station to open ahead of schedule


On Nov. 23, Port Authority of New York and New Jersey officials plan to restore Port Authority Trans-Hudson (PATH) rail service linking lower Manhattan to New Jersey.

The temporary PATH Station would open a month ahead of schedule. Part of the authority’s $566 million program to restore service to the World Trade Center area, the $323 million station will not include amenities, such as heating and air conditioning.

Federal Emergency Management Agency funds helped pay for the restoration, which included a $106 million project to repair PATH tunnels below the Hudson River, and a $137 million project to restore and enhance Jersey City’s Exchange Place Station.

A $2 billion permanent World Trade Center transportation hub is scheduled to open in 2006. It would include underground pedestrian connections to New York City subway stations and Metropolitan Transportation Authority’s proposed Fulton Street Transit Center. Preliminary engineering for the project is expected to be complete in spring 2004.
