ADA accessibility and viaduct improvements
Station owner New Jersey Transit decided to perform work at East Orange station to improve accessibility for the handicapped and to repair eighty-year-old viaducts at the station. At a cost of $22.9m, repair work at East Orange, along with nearby stations Brick Church and South Orange, commenced in 2004.
