The NJ 124 Corridor Transit Access Improvement Study is being conducted to assess and recommend station access improvements to the Chatham, Madison, and Convent Station NJ Transit commuter rail stations, which are served by the NJ Transit Morris & Essex Rail Line.
The project includes NJ 124 through Chatham, Madison and Morris Township. Chatham Township, Florham Park and Harding also are involved in the project.
Towns have said rail access is restricted due to limited parking and congested roads, which is why a new comprehensive analysis with recent data is being used to identify current and future needs, and to produce a plan to meet those needs, according to a page about the project on the division website.
The study is funded through the North Jersey Transportation Planning Authority’s Subregional Studies Program and managed by the Morris County Division of Transportation. VHB is the project consultant. The project began in January. It is expected to be completed in March 2013.
Comments can also be mailed to the Morris County Division of Transportation at PO Box 900, Morristown, NJ 07963-0900.
