Transit Village News
Proposed for North Brunswick, NJ on the former Johnson and Johnson property visible from Route 1 North and the northeast corridor tracks, it is proposed to improve on-time performance and commuting choices along the busy train corridor. It will be completed in conjunction with a long-proposed mixed-use development embodying the transit village concept: containing residential and retail development around mass transit.
According to Mr. Frassinelli’s report, “NJ Transit is requesting proposals from firms for preliminary design and engineering, construction assistance and other technical services for the "Mid-Line Loop" flyover track and new passenger rail station.A pre-proposal conference has been scheduled for Thursday at NJ Transit’s headquarters in Newark, and proposals are due by the end of the business day on Feb. 15.While it is still too early to definitively quote costs, a new station could cost about $30 million and the loop could cost "several hundred million," officials said.”
