Improvements to Princeton Jct and Trenton Train Stations This Fall
Improvements are being made to the Princeton Junction and Trenton Train Station, according to Planet Princeton.
New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy, Amtrak Board Chairman Tony Coscia, and NJ Transit CEO Kevin Corbett all held a press conference recently to announce that construction will be kicking off this fall, with the sign on the podium reading, Putting NJ Commuters First. The governor said, “A modern, safe, and reliable mass transit system is the foundation our state needs to grow our economy and reclaim our historic role as the state of innovation."
At the Princeton Junction station, improvements are already underway. The platform will be freshened up after much wear and tear and weather exposure over the years. It will be coated with a de-icer, to make those icy commuting days a little easier. The concrete is being patched, the warning strips are being repainted, and the steps and handrails are being fixed, among other things.
At the Trenton Transit Center, workers will "replace damaged timber boards that are located past the yellow warning strip on the platform in order to improve customer safety," according to the article.
I'm sure this is music to NJ commuters ears. Let's just hope it doesn't take too long.
