Room Was Opened And Then Closed As More Sandy Related Problems Were Discovered

HOBOKEN, N.J. (CBSNewYork) — There was more good news on Saturday, for commuters who pass through Hoboken.

The main waiting room at the train terminal will re-open on Monday morning as NJ Transit completes another round of post Sandy repairs.

“Now that the seating, the benches have been restored as well as the heating system,” NJ Transit spokesperson Nancy Snyder told WCBS 880’s Jim Smith.

The waiting room had been opened and closed a couple of times since it was flooded by Sandy more than a year ago. The repeated closures came as crews discovered additional problems.

“When we reopened it and then the heat started enveloping the area some of the floors buckled and then required more repair service,” Snyder said.

The latest closure dated back to October 7, when passengers began using a train car as a waiting room. That will go away on Monday morning.

“We’re very happy and proud to have reopened this well in time for winter,” Snyder said.
