New Jersey Transit is planning a new train station in North Brunswick on its Northeast Corridor line that could be in operation by 2018.
The project would coincide with plans by North Brunswick to built a transit village on the former Johnson & Johnson site on Route 1. If built, the station would be the first on the line — one of the busiest in the country — since Secaucus in 2003 and Hamilton in 1999.
NJT has said it is requesting proposals for preliminary design and engineering, construction assistance, and other technical services for the project. A pre-proposal conference has been scheduled for Thursday, January 10, at NJT’s headquarters in Newark. Proposals are due by the end of the business day on Friday, February 15.
“We think there will be many companies interested in this,” said Steve Santoro, assistant executive director of NJ Transit’s capital planning and programs.
