On Friday, January 15 at 11:30PM through Sunday night, January 17, boarding/alighting at Princeton Junction and Hamilton Station will be affected by track infrastructure improvements.

Additionally, during late-night hours, trains may arrive/depart on the Track 1 Eastbound Platform at both stations for travel in both directions. During these hours, ADA customers will be able to board/alight as normal at each station, but on the eastbound platform only.
