Mamaroneck approves transit-focused rezoning

By Mark Lungariello
The area targeted for the rezone centers around the village’s Metro-North station and is expected to encourage redevelopment of properties long discouraged from seeking permits due to a hodgepodge of zoning. The rezoning reduces the amount of nonconforming lots in the zone from 85 percent to 35 percent, according to Frank Fish of BFJ.

The change creates an overlay zone in the area around the village’s main thoroughfare, Mamaroneck Avenue, and allows for mixed-use buildings in the corridor. Bonuses would be included for developers that construct affordable housing units in residential buildings or build retail or restaurant space on the ground floor of residential buildings, which would be limited to four stories or less. The area, within a quarter-mile of the train station, is expected to be an attractive option for educated millennials looking for walkable communities and access to public transportation to Manhattan.

Construction underway on commuter rail line to Sussex County


By Larry Higgs | NJ Advance Media for NJ.com
Email the author
on January 14, 2015 at 8:19 AM, updated January 14, 2015 at 8:23 AM

Construction has begun on the first commuter train line to Sussex County in decades as rails are being installed that will extend service to Andover.

The first 4.25 miles of track have been installed on the former Lackawanna Cutoff, as part of the first phase of the project to restore 7.3 miles of track between the Port Morris rail yards and Andover Township, said William Smith, NJ Transit spokesman.


The Sierra Club's state chapter opposes the project because it will open up environmentally sensitive areas in the Highlands region to sprawling development, said Jeff Tittel, chairman. The project received federal environmental approvals in 2008.

Branch lines may benefit from Malloy’s transportation plan

By by Jeannette Ross on January 25, 2015
“Each of the branch lines has been through extensive studies,” Mr. Redeker said. They include Danbury, New Canaan and Waterbury.

The emphasis will be on expanded service and improved service. Although they are secondary to the main passenger line, he said the branch lines offer “extraordinary opportunities” for development and will be a “major focus” of the plan.

Coalition mulls possibilities for 'great urban spaces' along NJ Transit line in Newark, Oranges



— The mayors of three neighboring cities are expected to speak later this month about how changes to the areas surrounding train stations could potentially help bolster some of the state’s struggling neighborhoods.

The Urban Essex Coalition for Smart Growth formed in 2013 as a result of the Together North Jersey initiative, which is working to create transit-oriented developments in northern New Jersey. According to the Urban Essex Coalition’s Coordinator Tom Schulze, the group formed after a TNJ recommendation to look into redevelopment options surrounding a string of five train stations along the NJ Transit rail line in Newark, East Orange, and Orange.

The five-mile stretch encompasses about 62,000 residents across the three municipalities.

Northeast Rail Corridor to get new New Jersey stop with its own transit village


By Hank Kalet
New Jersey commuters wanting easy access to the Northeast rail corridor could have a whole new neighborhood to consider.

On the grounds of the former Johnson and Johnson plant in North Brunswick construction is underway on a major transit village that, if all goes well, will have its own train station on the Northeast corridor.

The project is called Main Street North Brunswick, which is on Route 1 between Princeton and New Brunswick. When finished it will boast 1,875 housing units, a hotel and spaces for offices and retail stores. All this will be anchored by the new NJ Transit station.

Does any one have an idea if NJ Transit is ever going to replace/expand its EMU rolling stock fleet?

They were thinking about retrofitting the double decker trains with pantographs , but there were concerns about the cost and added weight. The obsession NJT has with double deckers is unhealthy... Not only are the ones we have too heavy , but they have some capacity issues on the NEC due to the Airport luggage. Moving past the Luggage you have the overall congestion that adds to the dwell times at each station. The Single while they become crowded , boarding times are half that of double deckers. I hope that they buy some M8 style trains and some DMU trains for their Diesel lines...

A commuter train struck a car at a grade crossing.

At least 12 injuries were reported.

The accident caused the front of the express train to ignite.

This may have been 5:44pm express to Southeast (Putnam County), running non-stop from GCT to Chappaqua.
