Project Complete

Background
In July 2004, NJ TRANSIT was given responsibility for the design and construction of a new rail station at the I-80/Howard Boulevard intersection in Mount Arlington, New Jersey. After beginning with NJDOT as a multimodal Bus/Rail Park-and-Ride lot, NJ TRANSIT briefly took on the Rail park and ride aspects of the project, while NJDOT constructed the bus park and ride, which was opened in 2002. The project was then handed back to NJDOT for final site plans in 2002 and subsequently returned to NJ TRANSIT for completion in July 2004. This project will create a multimodal station by constructing 285' ADA compliant High Level Platforms (HLP's) on both sides of the tracks, a pedestrian overpass beneath the tracks and ADA compliant elevators and stairs, an enclosed inbound waiting shelter and also an enlarged the Park-and-Ride lot.

Project Scope
The Mount Arlington Station project includes a 285' long ADA compliant High Level Platforms (HLP's) on both sides of the tracks, a pedestrian underpass beneath the tracks. Project also includes ADA compliant stairs, and elevator, an enclosed waiting shelter at platform level on the inbound side and enlarge the existing Park-and-Ride lot to 285 spaces.

Project Cost
$16.7 million

Current Status
Service began on January 21, 2008.

Benefits
The Mount Arlington Station is a truly intermodal facility serving passengers with both bus and rail service. Project had added a new station to the Boonton and Morris and Essex rail line, lessening demand on other stations and also allowing passengers combined Bus and Rail connections, lessening demand on the I-80 corridor.
