Burns Oversees New Jersey Transit Distributed Generation Program

March 27, 2023

Burns is providing construction management services in support of a New Jersey Transit (NJT) program to overhaul back-up power systems across multiple bus maintenance, train station, and ferry terminal facilities.

In the event of a power outage, the distributed generation upgrades will ensure at minimum two weeks of resilient operations for six NJT locations:

  • Greenville Bus Maintenance Facility
  • Meadowlands Bus Maintenance Facility
  • Newark Broad Street Station
  • Port Imperial Ferry Station
  • Secaucus Junction Station
  • Wayne Bus Maintenance Facility

Burns is overseeing electrical, mechanical, and structural components of the design/build project. Modifications of the transportation system infrastructure will also require close coordination with NJT and Amtrak officials to limit disruption on transit operations.

Construction activities for the $39-million program are scheduled to complete in 2025.

Burns is proud to support NJT implement a wide range of system reliability, resiliency and sustainability improvements. Previous and on-going assignments include assessments and designs for NJ TransitGrid, the agency’s zero-emission bus garage modernization plan, and the Hoboken Depot and Henderson Street substations.
