    Clarkstown aims to create transit village in Nanuet


    Clarkstown is studying the idea of relocating the Nanuet train station closer to the hamlet's business district and new shopping mall.

    Khurram Saeed, ksaeed@lohud.com 12:02 p.m. EST January 16, 2015

    Clarkstown is studying the idea of relocating the Nanuet train station closer to the hamlet's business district and new shopping mall.

    At the very least, officials say the station — currently little more than a platform and heated shelter — needs to be overhauled, such as adding a coffee shop or eatery, to take full advantage of its prime location while helping to transform Nanuet into a quaint transit village.

    "The train station is a tremendous opportunity to really make Nanuet not just a better walkable community but also a destination," said Clarkstown Town Board member Stephanie Hausner, who cited Metro-North Railroad's station in Rye and NJ Transit's station in Park Ridge, New Jersey, as success stories.

    For others, the stakes are personal: a charming hamlet might prevent Rockland's young professionals from moving to Brooklyn or Hoboken.

    Massive challenges are ahead, including who would fund the improvements. Metro-North says it won't pay to relocate the station.

    Nanuet already has advantages most localities crave: a passenger rail line; the outdoor and upscale Shops at Nanuet; easy access to some of Rockland's most heavily traveled roads, including the Thruway, Route 59 and Route 304, and a main street featuring shops and residential housing.

    Bound Brook to renovate train station platform, waiting room, report says


    By Dave Hutchinson | NJ Advance Media for NJ.com
    on March 13, 2015 at 11:15 AM, updated March 13, 2015 at 3:30 PM

    BOUND BROOK — In January, nighttime one-seat rides to New York started on the Raritan Valley Line.

    As a result, many municipalities with train stations are looking to use the one-seat ride as a catalyst for downtown redevelopment plans, including Bound Brook, which is looking to upgrade the eastbound platform of its train station, according to a report on mycentraljersey.

    The project would also include reopening the historic 100-by-50-foot brick building as a waiting room -- train passengers currently must wait outside -- and the restoration of a staircase from South Main Street by the rotary.

    On Tuesday, the Borough Council introduced a $650,000 bond ordinance to fund the project. About $200,000 of that cost would be funded by the Capodagli Property Group, developer of the Meridia Main Station apartments on East Main Street and a proposed 175-unit apartment building on West Main Street west of the station, the report said.

    The borough is also seeking grants to fund the project, the report said.

    As previously reported on NJ.com, redevelopment efforts in Bound Brook are being centered within a quarter mile of the train station.

    New Castle fighting for a safer rail crossing

    New Castle officials said concerns about the Roaring Brook Road crossing in Chappaqua and last month's horrific train-car crash in Valhalla are making them take action to make that crossing safer.

    CHAPPAQUA – The safest way for cars to cross railroad tracks is via a bridge or a tunnel because cars and trains never intersect.

    Although there are efforts at the federal level to provide communities with funding to build such costly infrastructure, one Westchester town isn't waiting to make its Metro-North grade crossing safer. New Castle officials said there are too many concerns about the Roaring Brook Road crossing in Chappaqua and last month's horrific train-car crash in nearby Valhalla — which took the lives of two town residents — has served as a painful call to action.

    "Even if the bridge was approved tomorrow, it's not being built tomorrow," New Castle Town Supervisor Robert Greenstein said.

    Roaring Brook Road is one of 17 Metro-North grade crossings in Westchester and Putnam. There are several more in Rockland.

    While New Castle pushes for an overpass at the road that connects to the former Reader's Digest campus, it's working on short-term solutions.

    Town police have begun issuing tickets to drivers waiting too close to the tracks. Local officials also are looking into adding road signs and pavement markings as soon as the weather warms, and plans are in motion to educate residents about reducing risky behavior at highway-rail intersections.

    Metro-North: Bill requires safety messages on trains


    Metro-North Railroad would have to make announcements about what to do in an emergency aboard all of its trains every 20 minutes under a proposed bill in Albany.

    The messages would cover evacuation procedures, how to open emergency exits and the location of survival equipment.

    State Sen. Terrence Murphy, who drafted the bill, said knowing what to do in advance of an emergency could save lives and the best way to do that was to speak directly to riders. He came up with the idea after a Harlem Line train on Feb. 3 struck a sport utility vehicle stopped on the tracks at Commerce Street in Valhalla. The SUV's driver and five passengers on the train were killed in the worst accident in Metro-North history, which happened 14 months after a Hudson Line train derailed in the Bronx, killing four riders and injuring dozens.

    "If we can take steps and implement any type of safety (measures) for the passengers, it's our obligation to do so," said Murphy, R-Yorktown, whose district includes Valhalla.

    MTA Officials Consider Elevated Tracks At LIRR Crossings


    The Metropolitan Transportation Authority is considering several measures to improve safety at Long Island Rail Road crossings, including elevating tracks.

    The issue is receiving more attention after two LIRR trains struck vehicles this week.

    “If they were elevated, that would be a better alternative,” one rider told WCBS 880 Long Island Bureau Chief Mike Xirinachs. “Now you’re not going to have any cars crossing through the crossings.”

    The option would cost an esimated $100 million for each crossing. That has some riders worried about rising fares.

    “It’s really a waste of money,” said Richard, an LIRR customer. “People got to pay attention.”

    In both crashses this week, the vehicles’ drivers are believed to have ignored the ringing bells and flashing warning lights.

    On Tuesday, a 67-year-old man drove around the railroad gates just before his Ford Focus was struck by a train in Patchogue, authorities said. He was hospitalized with non-life-threatening injuries. No one aboard the train was injured.

    On Monday, a 63-year-old woman in East Rockaway drove onto the tracks despite warning lights, witnesses said. According to MTA police, the gates came down behind the vehicle while it was still on the tracks, and the train hit the rear of the SUV, pushing it off the tracks.

    The driver survived the crash and was treated for neck and back injuries. No one on that train was injured either.

    NJ Transit commuters pay the highest fares in the country, analysis finds


    By Larry Higgs | NJ Advance Media for NJ.com
    on March 27, 2015 at 1:50 PM, updated March 27, 2015 at 5:38 PM

    NJ Transit commuters who travel 48 miles between New York and Princeton Junction, pay $414 for a monthly pass, higher than the $377 monthly fare that a Long Island Rail Road rider pays to travel 49 miles between New York and Smithtown. Metro North commuters would pay $407 a month for a 52-mile trip between New York and Brewster, Conn., the study found

    LIRR to get improvements in Brooklyn, part of Barclays deal


    By ALFONSO A. CASTILLO March 22, 2015

    The $100 million real estate deal that led to the Barclays Center being built over a century-old rail yard is beginning to pay dividends for the Long Island Rail Road and its Brooklyn commuters, officials said.

    Seven years into the construction of a state-of-the-art new storage facility to replace the original Vanderbilt Yards, workers will soon punch through a 171-year-old rail tunnel to provide trains, for the first time, a direct path between the yard and Atlantic Terminal.
