NEWARK, N.J. — Certain NJ Transit trains may be delayed between Nov. 10 and 12 due to Amtrak repairing its signals, the agency said in a press release.

The work window will begin at 9 p.m. on Friday, Nov. 10. NJ Transit warns that some customers traveling the Northeast Corridor and on the North Jersey Coast Line could experience delays of up to an hour.

“The Amtrak work will require signals near Newark Penn Station to be taken out of service, requiring trains to operate at restricted speeds,” the agency said in a press release.

The signal work requires taking the Northeast Corridor 7600 train out-of-service. Customers will be accommodated on the next trains, arriving 5 to 10 minutes later. Amtrak will also take advantage of the work window to perform work on the Raritan Valley line. Customers intending to ride the train over the weekend will be offered substitute bus service instead.

NJ Transit urged customers using the network to travel to sports events to allow extra time in case of delays.

The agency is “ is relying on assurances by Amtrak the work will be complete prior to the start of the Monday morning rush hour on Nov. 13.”
