Group files emergency order to halt Dinky station move

Posted on August 19, 2013

PRINCETON, N.J. — Citizen group “Save the Dinky” filed an emergency application with the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection asking the state to temporarily stay the approval it gave New Jersey Transit (NJ Transit) last year to move the Dinky station train tracks, according to Planet Princeton.

NJ Transit sold the station property to Princeton University in October 1984, but retained an easement to preserve the use of the property for public transportation. At public hearings last year, NJ Transit told the state Historic Sites Council the sale contract obligated NJ Transit to move the terminus at the university’s request, and that its easement would then expire in five years. The Council granted NJ Transit’s request.

Princeton University has planned for the relocation of the station as part of its $300 million arts neighborhood. For the full story, click here.
