Glassboro-Camden Light Rail

Project details

  • Project Name: Glassboro-Camden Light Rail
  • Project Client: Delaware River Port Authority
  • Project Location: Camden and Gloucester Counties, New Jersey

The Glassboro-Camden Line Light Rail Project (GCL) is a proposed 18-mile expansion of transit service in Southern New Jersey that would traverse 11 communities in Camden and Gloucester counties. The proposed GCL would restore passenger rail service primarily along an existing Conrail freight corridor between Camden City and Glassboro Borough. The proposed project would provide 14 new transit stations and two park-and-ride facilities, as well as connections to the regional bus system, ancillary facilities such as signal houses and crossing cases, and a vehicle maintenance facility (VMF). A.D. Marble is leading all cultural investigations. To date, these studies have included a historic reconnaissance survey that identified approximately 300 historic resources, of which roughly 30 are listed in, eligible for listing in, or are potentially eligible for listing in the National Register of Historic Places; a Phase IA archaeological survey; and New Jersey State Historic Preservation Office (NJ HPO) coordination. A total of 19 NJ HPO Intensive Level Historic Survey forms have been prepared to date.
