Long-overdue repairs to the Red Bank are now “hitting the express track” with the installation of a slate roof, the Asbury Park Press reports Tuesday.
From the Press:
NJ Transit spokeswoman Nancy Snyder said the new roof is the first of several improvements to come this year at the old station.
In the first phase, budgeted at $800,000, the entire roof will be replaced work expected to be complete by mid-May, Snyder said. The existing gingerbread trim will also be replaced during this phase, she said.
NJ Transit officials are putting out a request for proposals this summer for the second phase, expected to start in mid- to late fall, Snyder said. That work will consist of restoring the remainder of the station, including stripping old paint, painting the building and improving the waiting room.
