NEWARK, N.J. (CBSNewYork) – Gov. Phil Murphy announced a major makeover Tuesday for a New Jersey transit hub.
“I’m proud to announce that work is going to begin immediately on $30 million in renovations to Newark Penn Station paid for through state funds,” Murphy said. “The interior of this historic station will be brought back to life to mirror the diversity and bustling city that awaits outside these doors.”
Opened in 1935, Newark Penn Station is one of the busiest in the country.
Gov. Murphy says these renovations are just part of a $190 million plan to re-envision how the station serves as a gateway to that city.
