NJ Transit customers who travel to and from Garfield, N.J. on the Bergen County Line will now benefit from the opening of a new and improved Plauderville Station, which is fully accessible to customers with disabilities and provides more convenient access to the station from the parking area.

In August 2009, the NJ Transit board of directors authorized a $7.9 million contract with Anselmi & DeCicco Inc. of Maplewood, N.J., for the construction of two 450-foot high-level platforms, as well as a new heated waiting area on the inbound platform, canopies, lighting, electronic signage, closed-circuit television cameras, ramps and sidewalks.

The new platforms were built adjacent to the parking area located between Midland Avenue and Outwater Lane, south of the existing low-level platforms, providing customers with more convenient access to the station.

Plauderville Station is the first NJ Transit facility to incorporate platforms constructed with Armor Deck, a material with a structural polymer composite system used in place of concrete.  The use of this material will result in a substantial cost savings to the agency in terms of repairs and replacement over the years, as it resists corrosion and is maintenance-free, and has proven more durable than concrete when exposed to salt and other ice melting chemicals.

Located on the Bergen County Line, Plauderville Station serves about 400 customers on a typical weekday.
