Previously closed section of Hoboken Terminal concourse reopens

HOBOKEN — The concourse at Hoboken Terminal that was damaged in September during a fatal train crash reopened on Monday, allowing commuters to pass in front of all the gates instead of being diverted into the waiting room.
In April, NJT announced the concourse near track 5 would be repaired by June. It has been blocked by green plywood barriers.
“The full long term permanent repairs are slated for 2019,” said NJ Transit spokesman Jim Smith. “The entire project to restore it to pre-accident condition is 2019 and that includes various structural components that were damaged such as the ticketing office, the concourse, the concourse roof, and mechanical and electrical and electrical communication infrastructures.”
Track 6, which had been closed for repairs, will also reopen for service.
A federal investigation is continuing into the causes of the crash.
