Frank R. Lautenberg Rail Station at Secaucus Junction (NJ Transit)

The Frank R. Lautenberg Rail Station at Secaucus Junction links 10 of NJ Transit’s 11 train lines to provide connections for intra-New Jersey rail trips not formerly possible, and to reduce northern NJ travel times to and from mid-Manhattan by 15 minutes. The $450 million project, built on 28 acres at the intersection of NJ Transit’s Northeast Corridor and the Main Line, was dedicated on September 6, 2003.

The Station’s lower level serves the Main Line; an intermediate level serves the Northeast Corridor, and there is an upper level Concourse featuring a 75-foot-high public rotunda capped by a 50-foot-wide skylight and clerestory windows. The Concourse Level includes waiting areas, ticketing, public rest rooms, station offices and retail space.

VDA provided full consulting services through construction administration for thirty-three (33) escalators and eleven (11) elevators throughout the station.
