This bill directs the New Jersey Turnpike Authority (authority) to study and prepare a report, for submission to the Governor and the Legislature, concerning the potential options for the construction of a rail station at the Vince Lombardi Park and Ride facility (facility) in Ridgefield, Bergen County. The proposed rail station is to allow the New Transit Jersey Corporation to provide rail passenger service connecting the proposed rail station to the existing rail station in the Borough of Hawthorne, Passaic County, and to the light rail station at Tonnell Avenue in North Bergen, Hudson County, through the use of the New York, Susquehanna and Western Railway right-of-way. The report is to include: a description of each possible option to construct a rail station at the facility, including the locations for the placement of additional rail stations, which is to provide the facility with service connections to the Main-Bergen County Line and Pascack Valley Line through the use of the New York, Susquehanna and Western Railway right-of-way; an assessment of the feasibility of constructing a rail station at the facility, including the technology to be utilized in any new construction of additional rail stations; the estimated cost of each option to construct a rail station at the facility, including the estimated cost of the acquisition of property and rights-of-way and the availability of any federal funds to offset the costs of each option; the estimated time of implementation of each option to construct a rail station at the facility, including the time necessary for permitting; a projection of the number of residences and businesses that will be negatively impacted by each option to construct a rail station at the facility; an assessment of the environmental impact of each option to construct a rail station at the facility; an assessment of the impact on potential utilization of the facility, including the projected effects on traffic congestion and current motorbus regular route service ridership; and any other relevant information concerning the feasibility of construction of a rail station at the facility. Under the bill, the authority is required to submit its report to the Governor and Legislature within 12 months following the bill's effective date.
