GOVERNOR MCGREEVEY TO OFFICIALLY REOPEN
EXCHANGE PLACE PATH STATION ON SUNDAY, JUNE 29
Date: Jun 27, 2003
Press Release Number: 91-2003
The Exchange Place PATH Station in Jersey City, N.J. – closed after the September 11, 2001, terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center – will be officially reopened by New Jersey Governor James E. McGreevey at 11:30 a.m. on Sunday, June 29.# # #
Governor McGreevey is scheduled to arrive at the station on a PATH train. A ceremony will be held on the outdoor plaza directly adjacent to the station, located at the end of Montgomery Street in Jersey City.
The $160 million Exchange Place PATH station restoration project involved the construction of new crossover tunnels, along with new track work, to create a terminal station. When the World Trade Center PATH station was destroyed, there was no operational way to get PATH trains in and out of the Exchange Place station without creating serious disruption to other PATH services.
