    New Jersey Transit Seeking 25 Acres for Train 'Safe Haven'

    New Jersey Transit wants to buy 25 acres to serve as a "safe haven" for trains after more than 300 were flooded during Superstorm Sandy.

    NJ.com reports that agency officials plan to vote Thursday on a proposal to buy the land in Middlesex County.

    Plans include building five new tracks at County Yard in New Brunswick and an additional five-mile track at Delco Lead in North Brunswick. The estimated overall cost for the projects is $368 million.

    Transit officials say the state would pay $185 million while a Federal Transit Administration grant would cover the rest.

    If approved, the project would be completed by the end of 2021.
