TRAVEL ADVISORY - PATH EXCHANGE PLACE STATION SUBJECT TO PERIODIC CLOSINGS TODAY WITH LARGE CROWDS EXPECTED FOR JULY FOURTH FESTIVITIES

Date: Jul 05, 2017
Press Release Number: 124-2017

Department (PAPD), in the event of large crowds attending the Jersey City Fourth of July festival and fireworks scheduled for Exchange Place.

The city’s holiday festivities were relocated to Exchange Place after the partial state shutdown closed Liberty State Park, where the festival and fireworks are normally hosted. In the event there needs to be a closure, PATH trains on the Newark-World Trade Center line will bypass the station in both directions, and passengers would be advised to use the nearby Grove Street station.

Additional PAPD officers are being assigned to the Exchange Place station area to address the anticipated rise in PATH ridership later today. PATH is also encouraging customers to purchase fares in advance to avoid overcrowding.
