In recognition of Presidents Day Weekend, PATH will not be closing its World Trade Center station this weekend for extensive tunnel repairs necessitated by Superstorm Sandy. Regular weekend train service between the WTC-Exchange Place stations will be in effect.

Weekend WTC closures will resume Saturday, February 23 at 12:01 a.m. through 5 a.m. Monday, February 25, with train service on the Newark-WTC PATH line again terminating at the Exchange Place stop during the period of weekend tunnel repairs.

The WTC station is scheduled to be closed for 45 weekends each year during 2019 and 2020 for major tunnel repairs, including replacement of PATH track, third rail, electrical, signal and communications infrastructure.
