July 14--The NJ Transit board of directors approved construction of the final phase of the Pennsauken Transit Center -- which will result in the creation of a direct link between River Line light rail and the Atlantic City Rail Line.
"By connecting South Jersey's two rail lines, this new facility will expand the reach of these individual services, providing customers with convenient access to a much broader array of travel destinations," said James Simpson, transportation commissioner and board chairman, in a press release Wednesday.
Phase II of the project will cost $13.8 million and will include platforms, a parking lot drainage improvements and customer amenities, a press release detailing the project read.
The total project will cost about $32 million. The center is expected to be completed in late 2012 and open for services in early 2013.
