New Jersey Finalizes Southern Hoboken Alignment

The State of New Jersey decided that the most cost-effective way to reduce flood risk in southern Hoboken is to build an intervention structure midway between a rail yard and major thoroughfare, the locations of two earlier contested options. The governor, Department of Environmental Protection, and city agreed that the new “middle ground” alignment will minimize impacts to rail operations, allow commercial redevelopment on part of NJ Transit’s rail yard, and reduce visual impacts along the city’s southernmost access route.

The final alignment of the project will be constructed along Weehawken Cove to the north, and in and around NJ Transit’s Hoboken Rail Yard, located at the southern portion of Hoboken’s waterfront. Learn more>>
