Harrison's Newark-bound PATH platform opens

(AP) - Commuters who ride PATH trains from Harrison's station have a new section of platform for Newark-bound trains.



They will turn right onto the platform beginning at 11 a.m. Thursday because the east end of the platform is closed because of construction.



A similar change was made to the eastbound platform last week.



The construction is part of a $256 million project to replace the nearly 80-year-old station.



Platforms will be extended to accommodate longer trains, stairs will be widened, there will be escalator access to the platforms and entrances will be enclosed in glass.
