NJ TRANSIT announced it is moving forward with plans to revitalize Mahwah train station to enhance the customer experience, according to the agency's news release.
Phase One of this project will include state-of-good repair work to the station’s roof, replacement of retaining walls, and electrical and lighting upgrades. These improvements will preserve the building’s aesthetic while also enhancing a piece of Mahwah Township’s downtown.
“NJ TRANSIT’s continuous focus on maintaining the system in a state of good repair ensures continued safe and reliable service for New Jersey residents,” said Diane Gutierrez-Scaccetti, NJ TRANSIT Board chair. “Capital investment in this important station project will be a benefit for the local community and for our customers.”
As part of the procurement process, NJ TRANSIT has released an Invitation For Bid for critical state-of-good repair work that includes:
- Roof repairs to include new framing, gutters, downspouts, roof sheathing replacement, and rafter repair and replacement.
- Retaining wall & site work to include replacement of a retaining wall including north stairs, concrete work, and associated landscaping.
- Electrical work to include relocation of the Ticket Vending Machine and electrical equipment and lighting upgrades below the roof ceiling over the arcade columns.
“The Mahwah train station is an important and vital part of our beautiful town,” said Mahwah Mayor Jim Wysocki. “We are relieved that NJ TRANSIT has placed Mahwah in their five-year capital investment plan to restore the beauty and safety of Mahwah’s beloved and historical train station. We look forward to the restoration and getting the station back to its full, intended use for our residents and commuters.”
