Beginning on January 6, and lasting for 20 weekends, the Grove Street PATH station will partially close to allow for renovations including new floors, refinished columns, a refinished ceiling and new LED lighting. There should be no disruption to weekday service.

During the construction, the Port Authority is advising riders in the impacted direction to plan for additional travel time if their trip begins or ends at Grove Street.

For the first half of the project, Journal Square- and Newark-Penn Station-bound trains will bypass Grove St. For the second half of the project, World Trade Center-bound and Hoboken/33 St.-bound trains will bypass Grove St. These bypasses will occur from 6 a.m. Saturdays until 11:59 p.m. Sundays.

Trains will bypass Grove Street in one direction or the other over 20 weekends as listed below.

The project will be undertaken in two phases:

  • Phase 1: From the first weekend in January through approximately the end of March, Journal Square-bound and Newark-Penn Station-bound trains will bypass Grove St.
    • For service to Journal Square, Harrison or Newark stations from Grove St.: Customers can take a World Trade Center-bound train to Exchange Pl. and transfer to a Newark-Penn Station-bound train. Alternatively, customers can take a Hoboken/33 St.-bound train to Newport and transfer to a Journal Square-bound train.
    • For service to Grove St. from Exchange Pl. or World Trade Center: Customers can take a Newark-Penn Station-bound train to Journal Square, then transfer to a World Trade Center-bound or Hoboken/33 St.-bound train to ride back to Grove St.
    • For service to Grove St. from Newport, Hoboken, Christopher St., 9 St., 14 St., 23 St., or 33 St. stations: Customers can take a Journal Square-bound train to Journal Square, then transfer to a World Trade Center-bound or Hoboken/33 St.-bound train to ride back to Grove St.
  • Phase 2: On weekends from approximately early April through June, World Trade Center-bound and Hoboken/33 St.-bound trains will bypass Grove St.
    • For World Trade Center-bound or Hoboken/33 St.-bound service from Grove St: Customers can take a Journal Square-bound or Newark-Penn Station-bound train to Journal Square and transfer to a World Trade Center-bound or 33 St.-bound train. Alternatively, customers can begin their trip at nearby Exchange Pl. or Newport stations.
    • For service from Newark-Penn Station, Harrison, or Journal Square to Grove St.: From Newark-Penn Station and Harrison, customers can take a World Trade Center-bound train to Exchange Pl., and transfer to a Newark-Penn Station-bound train to ride back to Grove St. From Journal Square, customers can either take a Hoboken/33 St.-bound train to Newport and transfer to a Journal-Square-bound train to ride back to Grove St., or take a World Trade Center-bound train to Exchange Pl. and transfer to a Newark-Penn Station-bound train to ride back to Grove St.

At Grove Street, barricades will be installed and removed each weekend to close off half the platform and protect the public from ongoing construction.

PATH will issue regular informational updates on the project and any changes in the work schedule, train schedules or service overall.
