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.
