NJ Transit is moving forward with plans to revamp its Mahwah train station and improve customer service.
The first phase of the project will include critical state-of-good-repair work on the station’s roof, retaining wall replacement, and electrical and lighting upgrades.
These upgrades will retain the building’s historic appearance while enhacing a key component of Mahwah Township’s downtown area, a release said.
“NJ Transit’s continuous focus on maintaining the system in a state of good repair ensures continued safe and reliable service for New Jersey residents,” said New Jersey Department of Transportation Commissioner and NJ Transit Board Chair Diane Gutierrez-Scaccetti. “Capital investment in this important station project will be a benefit for the local community and for our customers.”
As part of the procurement process, NJ Transit has released an Invitation For Bid for critical state of good repair work that includes:
- Roof repairs to include new framing, gutters, downspouts, roof sheathing replacement as well as rafter repair and replacement
- Retaining wall and site work to include replacement of a retaining wall including north stairs, concrete work and associated landscaping
- Electrical work to include re-location of the ticket vending machine and electrical equipment and lighting upgrades below the roof ceiling over the arcade columns
“The improvements coming to our Mahwah Station will provide an enhanced travel experience for all those customers who depend on it every day,” said NJ Transit President and CEO Kevin Corbett. “Train stations throughout our system are often the first touchpoint in a customer’s journey, and we are committed to ensuring these vital transit hubs deliver the best possible experience for our customers and the communities they serve.”
