New station stairs coming

After a few recent reader comments and emails, I inquired about the stairs, or lack thereof, on the East Milton Avenue/New York-bound side of the Train Station platform.

The photo at left was taken in June, before demolition of the stairs.

A spokesman for NJ Transit offered this: “The middle tier of the stairway is being replaced due to corrosion from anti-icing agents. Demolition is complete and reconstruction is expected to be completed within next several months. Cost is about $100,000.”

The Rahway Train Station underwent a $16-million renovation in 2002.
