New Jersey Transit, Distributed Generation Program

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.

Superstorm Sandy caused major disruption to passenger rail and other commuter systems throughout New York and New Jersey. To prepare for future weather events and any other potential power outages, NJT is implementing distributed generation upgrades across multiple facilities.

The distributed generation program 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 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.
