Closure of the WTC Station on weekends to facilitate Superstorm Sandy-related tunnel repairs will resume January 4, 2020

Beginning Saturday, November 30 and continuing through the holidays, the PATH World Trade Center Station will remain open on weekends. The station has been closed most weekends since January 2019 to accommodate repair and rehabilitation work on the tunnels between the WTC and Exchange Place stations.

Weekend WTC Station closures will resume January 4, 2020, and weekend tunnel work is scheduled to continue through December 2020, except for major holidays, to allow for equipment replacement and repairs necessitated by Superstorm Sandy.

The PATH tunnel repairs include replacement of PATH’s tracks, third rail, electrical, signal and communications infrastructure. Since the repair program began, PATH weekend service has been terminating at the Exchange Place Station.

NY Waterway has been providing expanded weekend ferry service between the Harborside Ferry Landing in Jersey City and the Brookfield Place Terminal in Lower Manhattan during the weekend outages. On weekends during the holiday season, NY Waterway will be running a modified schedule. Ferries will run on 20-minute schedules with the first trip from Harborside starting at 9:50 a.m. and the last return ferry leaving Brookfield at 10:50 p.m.
