NEW JERSEY -

Some South Jersey lawmakers are demanding answers from New Jersey Transit when it comes to the continued closure of the Atlantic City Rail Line (ACRL).

Second District Assemblymen Vincent Mazzeo and John Armato released a statement on Wednesday, January 9th, urging NJ Transit to announce an opening date for the Atlantic City Rail Line.

They say they stand with Atlantic County commuters in demanding answers, the statement goes on to say that they sent a letter officially requesting not only a reopening date but also a public information meeting in Atlantic County on the new operating schedule.

NJ Transit officials said they needed to shut down the ACRL in early September in order to install Positive Train Control (PTC) along the track.

Officials say that the PTC installation was completed in December, but no reopening date has been announced.
