Renovations that have shut down the entrance and upper parking lot at the Morristown train station are scheduled to continue into September 2016, according to NJ Transit’s website.
Repaving and underground utility work began in June, according to the site. The bus stop in front of the station has been relocated temporarily to the east end parking lot adjacent to the station building.
“The work at Morristown station is mostly complete and includes repaving the parking lot, installing additional drainage, rebuilding the front stairs and curbing around the station building,” NJ Transit spokesman Jim Smith told MorristownGreen.com on Thursday.
Because the $775,000 project includes federal funding, it is unaffected by the shutdown of construction jobs tied to the state Transportation Trust Fund, Smith said.
Remaining items include grading of a walkway in front of the station, the spokesman said.
From the transit agency:
Customers using the lower-level parking lot and the temporary bus stop should use the doors in the back of the station building for access inside the building. The waiting room hours are 4:45 a.m. to 2 p.m. and accessible only during those times.
The exterior stairway on the east end and the west end of the station or the elevator are available for access to the eastbound platform after 2 p.m.
