The small town of Harrison, NJ, formerly an industrial center, is re-inventing itself as a major commuter hub for travel to New York City.
With rapid transit ridership at the Station increasing over 30% in the past six years, this Project is a critical part of PATH’s system-wide upgrades for the next decade.
This Project completely modernizes the existing Harrison Southwest Station and will feature glass and steel construction. Amenities will include a modern elevator, widened stairs, weather protected station entrances and extended platforms to accommodate 10-car trains.
The Station is part of PATH’s $256m four-phase redevelopment program. The new Southwest station features an airy, light-filled glass-and-steel design and modernized amenities. It features glass-enclosed, weather-protected station entrances, as well as a modern elevator and widened stair access to the platform.
Work is multi-faceted and significantly staged as to not affect daily PATH operations. All building adheres to PANYNJ Sustainable Building Guidelines and takes into account the US Green Building Council’s LEED Rating System.
