Newark Penn station is getting an upgrade
If you've ever ridden the train into New York City, you've either had to get off at Newark Penn Station and take another train or the PATH train or you stayed on your train and continued into the city. Either way, you've definitely seen Newark Penn Station, and you may have thought to yourself, "Wow this place needs a little work."
According to NJ.com, the Department of Transportation plans to spend over 18 million dollars giving Newark Penn Station a facelift. Officials understand how busy of a station it is and how many commuters really pass through it on a daily basis. In fact, U.S. Senator Bob Menendez says Newark Penn Station is one of the busiest stations on the Northeast Corridor. So what will the 18 million be spent on? Not restaurants, but rail improvements. The rails, as well as the canopies and decks will undergo major construction during this time. NJ Transit President & CEO Kevin Corbett says the platform upgrades will improve the quality of people's commute. I'm just wondering if there will be delays or will all be good with people's commutes. Only time will tell!
