Date: Sep 19, 2019
Press Release Number: 151-2019

Beginning Monday, September 23, the PATH station at Newport will be undergoing installation of new and improved elevators, a process scheduled to last until April 2020 that will necessitate riders with disabilities using an accessible nearby station to gain access to the system.

At Newport Station, in addition to new elevators, PATH will be installing new escalators and building in new flood protection measures in the station headhouses to better withstand future storms. That portion of the Newport project is expected to be completed in 2022.

Similar work will be taking place at the Exchange Place, Grove Street, and Hoboken stations through 2022.
