Newark Penn Station Improvements

The New Jersey Congressional delegation has secured $18.4 million in federal funds for improvements at Newark Penn Station (NPS). The U.S. Department of Transportation grant will be used to repair the platform serving tracks 3 and 4 at NPS, which primarily serves westbound NJ TRANSIT and Amtrak trains on the Northeast Corridor.

Among the planned improvements: structural reinforcement work; applying a corrosion-resistant membrane on the platform surface; rebuilding platform edges; installing new tactile warning strips and timber rub rails; repairing and/or replacing the overhead canopy and lighting fixtures; and replacing platform deck joints.

When completed, the rehabilitated platform will enhance safety and the overall experience of rail customers at the station. Historic NPS is New Jersey's busiest transportation hub, serving NJ TRANSIT, Amtrak and PATH trains, as well as Newark Light Rail, and NJ TRANSIT and private carrier buses.
