Resilience Program Updates
Did you know NJ TRANSIT is advancing five major resilience projects that will help protect our system and help to keep it operational during future storms and/or power failures? You can find out more about them on a new website - www.njtransitresilienceprogram.com.
The projects include:
- NJ TRANSITGRID: An electric microgrid capable of supplying reliable power to critical infrastructure when the public power grid fails.
- Delco Lead and County Yard: Construction of new tracks and support facilities to improve rail equipment storage, inspections and servicing of trains before, during and after storms.
- Long Slip: This project will fill in an inactive canal adjacent to Hoboken Terminal and construct six new tracks at the terminal, mitigating surge threats and increasing boarding capacity
- Raritan River Drawbridge (pictured): Replacing the century-old North Jersey Coast Line bridge between Perth Amboy and South Amboy, which was significantly damaged during Superstorm Sandy.
- Train Controls: A project that will protect signal and communications systems in flood-prone areas on five commuter rail and light rail lines during extreme weather events.
When visiting the website, you will find detailed project descriptions, an interactive map, videos and project documents in searchable and printable formats. You can also provide feedback on these projects and sign up to receive updates, alerts and information.
Finally, you will find convenient links to www.njtransit.com where you can learn about other transit projects, business opportunities and more. Be sure to visit the resilience website periodically at www.njtransitresilienceprogram.com for project updates and announcements.
