COSTCO Grand Opening and NJ TRANSIT Update
Construction of the MainStreetNB transit village on Route 1 has continued steadily over the summer. North Brunswick TOD Associates, the Developer, has completed its traffic improvements to Route 1 at the intersections of Aaron, Commerce, and Adams/Cozzens. Additionally, this work by the Developer includes the “Arlington Bypass,” which eases traffic travelling from Route 27 to Route 1.
COSTCO will open its doors to the public this Thursday, July 24, at 8:00 am. Access to the Costco is available directly off of Route 1 North or via the Aaron Road exit from Route 1 South.
Construction in MainStreetNB will continue as Target prepares to open in October, 2014.
On July 9, NJ TRANSIT released a press release regarding its investment in the Northeast Corridor and the future North Brunswick Station.
The program continues to invest in upgrades to the Northeast Corridor (NEC), the agency’s most utilized rail line. The NEC is allocated $76 million in FY 2015 as part of NJ TRANSIT’s ten-year, $1 billion Northeast Corridor investment program that includes funding for the new North Brunswick Station, the Mid-Line Loop—a new flyover track to improve Corridor operations and increase operational efficiencies—and upgrades to County Yard.
The New station will play a crucial role in the future of the village, and will increase the efficiency and operation of the existing Corridor- the busiest in North America.
