Due to extensive underground sewer repair work by the Jersey City Municipal Utilities Authority (JCMUA), NJ TRANSIT will be required to temporarily discontinue service at three stations in Jersey City:
West Side Avenue Station
Martin Luther King Drive
Light rail service will be suspended for approximately nine months along this route. Emergency repair work is scheduled to begin on or about June 1, 2019 and continue to March 1, 2020.
Substitute bus service will be provided for express travel from each of the three stations (West Side Avenue, Martin Luther King Drive and Garfield Avenue) directly to the Liberty State Park station, where customers can connect to regular HBLR service. Shuttle buses will also provide local service between each of the three stations. The West Side Avenue Park and Ride will remain open during the station closure. When the project begins, NJ TRANSIT customer service representatives will be on location to help direct customers.
