NY Penn Station work to close 3 tracks at a time

NY Penn Station work to close 3 tracks at a time

In the first week of June, NJ Transit will release information on its modified schedules during the Penn Station fix period.

They say the tracks will be closed so rails, switches and other aging equipment can be replaced. NJ Transit, Amtrak and LIRR share track 13. It's the spot where dispatchers route trains to the station's 21 tracks via switches.

Three tracks will be taken out of service at a time because two are needed for staging and removing old equipment while work proceeds on a third track, DeCataldo said Thursday. The New York Times reported that Christie said, "We know we can't trust Amtrak", in an article that added, "Mr. Christie expressed no faith in Amtrak's ability to keep any trains running on time. The idea of doing this in a compressed time frame is that we'll get it done much more quickly", DeCataldo said.

At a press conference Tuesday, Gov. Chris Christie said the Morris & Essex Line's Midtown Direct Service, which serves Chatham, Madison and Morristown among other towns, would end in Hoboken, where passengers may transfer to PATH trains or ferries to Manhattan, for about eight weeks while repairs are made to tracks at New York Penn Station. Trains will be diverted to Hoboken.

The Senate Legislative Oversight and Assembly Judiciary Committees will a hold a hearing on Wednesday in Newark to discuss the impact on the Morris & Essesx line. Tickets will be cross-honored on the ferry, light rain and buses to complete the ride into NY.

Fares will be cut 56 percent to 63 percent for July and August, Christie announced earlier this week.

McKeon also criticized Christie for exacerbating transit problems by moving 75 percent of NJ Transit's capital funds to its operating budget and for canceling plans for a new trans-Hudson commuter rail tunnel.
