NJ TRANSIT Puts Shovels in the Ground for New Bay Head Yard Substation - Effective Immediately



North Jersey Coast Line service will not be disrupted as a result of this work.

NJ TRANSIT is advancing to the construction phase of a new power substation at the Bay Head yard on the North Jersey Coast Line. The new substation is critical to continuing or rapidly restoring rail service in times of environmental or other disasters.

The new substation, funded by the Federal Transit Administration (FTA), is replacing two existing Bay Head yard substations damaged during Superstorm Sandy. It will not only be protectively encased but will also be elevated above anticipated saltwater storm surges and flooding levels.

In addition to the hardened substation, redundancy will be provided by a new backup generator and a connection to the public electric grid to ensure ongoing service.

The Bay Head Substation project is part of NJ TRANSIT’s ongoing Resilience Program, to make the transit system and infrastructure stronger and more reliable following Superstorm Sandy in 2012.
