NJ Transit to add train track, 7 stations

By ,

NJ Transit is extending some train tracks and building seven new train stations.

The NJ Transit Board approved the proposed alignment of the Hudson-Bergen Light Rail’s planned expansion into Bergen County on Wednesday. Plans call for a 10-mile two-track extension of the Hudson-Bergen Light Rail from its current terminus at Tonnelle Avenue northward to the Englewood Hospital and Medical Center, generally using CSX Transportation’s Northern Branch running track.

NJ Transit also will construct new stations in North Bergen, Ridgefield, Palisades Park, Leonia, and three in Englewood. It will provide parking at those sites for a total 2,740 vehicles.
