NJ Transit receives $75 million for hurricane repairs
NJ Transit will receive $75 million in federal dollars for the construction of a new rail maintenance of way facility in Clifton, the Federal Transit Administration announced on Tuesday.
The new facility will replace an obsolete and flood-prone facility in Wood-Ridge. The 70-year-old facility was damaged during Hurricane Ida in 2021.
The new facility is currently in the preliminary design phase and will be located on NJ Transit property on Kuller Road in Clifton, which is at higher elevation.
As part of a public transportation emergency relief program, $110 million was shared out nationwide with New Jersey receiving most of the money.
