WOOD-RIDGE - A nearly $18 million train station in northern New Jersey has opened following a half-decade of missed project deadlines.

The Record newspaper reports the Wesmont train station in Wood-Ridge opened on Sunday without a ribbon-cutting ceremony or any celebratory speeches.

Sunday is the start of NJ Transit's new quarterly train schedule.

The station is on the Bergen County rail line.

The station project has faced delays partly due to issues securing parking for the facility. Wesmont currently has a temporary lot with 28 spaces.

The station is intended to serve condos, townhouses, apartments and retail on the site of a former Curtiss-Wright airplane engine factory.

A one-way ticket from Wesmont station to New York is $5.75. A monthly two-way commuter pass would cost $184.
