Newark Penn Station to Celebrate 80th Anniversary on Monday

Friday, March 20, 2015


Newark Penn Station will turn 80 this Monday, and New Jersey Transit is planning a celebration. The station, which is located in Downtown Newark, serves PATH trains, New Jersey Transit trains, the Newark Light Rail, Amtrak trains, and local buses. It is the busiest train station in New Jersey, with an average of over 27,000 (Commuter Rail) weekday New Jersey Transit train riders. Newark Penn Station was designed by McKim, Mead and White, and was dedicated on March 23, 1935. Rail service began the following day.

A variety of activities will take place throughout the morning and afternoon. From 9:30am to 2:00pm, the New Jersey Transportation Heritage Center, of Phillipsburg, will present a historical bus display in front of the station on Raymond Plaza West. Buses from the 1950s will be on display. In addition, there will be musical performances by Brian Miguel at 10:00am, Rachel Menconi at 11:20am, and Susyn Timko at 12:00pm. Plus, the Newark Arts High School Jazz Ensemble will perform at 1:00pm and 2:00pm.

35-minute long tours of Newark Penn Station will be offered at 11:00am at 12:00pm, starting at the information booth. Participants will learn about the history of the station and the Pennsylvania Railroad, tour the concourses, see architectural design features, and learn about future projects. A question and answer session will follow, and a speaking program is scheduled for 1:30pm.

Partners include the Greater Newark Convention and Visitors Bureau, the New Jersey Performing Arts Center, the Newark Museum, and the Ironbound Business Improvement District.

I will be giving this station a full photo review tomorrow during the event...the PATH , Underground LRT , Bus Bays , Commuter Rail , DOCK Bridges and approaches...

The Official ones are really just stalled...and probably for a long time...but I left them on there anyway...

The Stalled plans which are mainly town and county projects along with stalled LRT extensions include... The rest should sometime over the next 5 to 7 years. The Connecticut ones are attached to either TOD projects or Branch upgrades that seem to gaining steam. Some of the Projects I have posted on this page or previous pages.

New Castle fighting for a safer rail crossing

New Castle officials said concerns about the Roaring Brook Road crossing in Chappaqua and last month's horrific train-car crash in Valhalla are making them take action to make that crossing safer.

CHAPPAQUA – The safest way for cars to cross railroad tracks is via a bridge or a tunnel because cars and trains never intersect.

Although there are efforts at the federal level to provide communities with funding to build such costly infrastructure, one Westchester town isn't waiting to make its Metro-North grade crossing safer. New Castle officials said there are too many concerns about the Roaring Brook Road crossing in Chappaqua and last month's horrific train-car crash in nearby Valhalla — which took the lives of two town residents — has served as a painful call to action.

"Even if the bridge was approved tomorrow, it's not being built tomorrow," New Castle Town Supervisor Robert Greenstein said.

Metro-North: Bill requires safety messages on trains


Metro-North Railroad would have to make announcements about what to do in an emergency aboard all of its trains every 20 minutes under a proposed bill in Albany.

The messages would cover evacuation procedures, how to open emergency exits and the location of survival equipment.

MTA Officials Consider Elevated Tracks At LIRR Crossings


The Metropolitan Transportation Authority is considering several measures to improve safety at Long Island Rail Road crossings, including elevating tracks.

The issue is receiving more attention after two LIRR trains struck vehicles this week.

“If they were elevated, that would be a better alternative,” one rider told WCBS 880 Long Island Bureau Chief Mike Xirinachs. “Now you’re not going to have any cars crossing through the crossings.”

I was going to say the same thing... I believe building an underpass in the Netherlands costs about €30 million, while lower 2 kilometres of railroad costs about €250 million. So yeah, what is going on here?

I also skimmed Long Island, and it would seem to me that you could easily close down half of the level crossings without affecting traffic circulation.

The cost of capital construction is what is what is really holding the MTA back from getting its funding plan!

Definitely agree, without more insight into what drives up costs, it's difficult to say what the culprit is. Many conservative commentators would state the problem lies with the unions, yet I would counter and say while that may be a component of the problem, it is not sufficient to explain the high cost.

Does anybody know how contracts are allocated? Is it through a reverse-auction?
