NEW BRUNSWICK, NJ – Mayor Jim Cahill was thanking Gov. Phil Murphy and others for investing $49 million to modernize and expand the New Brunswick Train Station when he was interrupted by the whoosh of a passing commuter train.
“Well-cued,” Cahill said, with a laugh.
The same thing could be said for the planned renovations considering that more than a billion dollars of nearby development projects are moving ahead faster than a locomotive – and likely bringing an influx of thousands of new commuters to the city each day in the near future.
The train station upgrades, which were unveiled Friday, Sept. 23 near the future site of the New Jersey Innovation and Technology Hub, include extending and replacing well-worn passenger platforms and rehabbing and replacing bulky escalators and elevators.
