Project Description
This station, originally built in the early 1900’s, serves New Jersey Transit bus and train commuters in Monmouth County.  It is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and as such, all renovations must conform to state regulations.  The project required creation of a new canopy to match the one on the original station.

A new wood truss canopy frame was built and painted to match to the building’s original colors.  Lead-coated copper roofing was applied and new lighting installed.  A small HVAC was also relocated.

The  station remained open throughout the restoration work and did not impact the 1,100 daily commuters who utilize it.
