Harrison Path to Journal Square Path Closure Map

For commuters who frequently travel between Harrison and Journal Square and New York City  a temporary closure of PATH service is set for two consecutive weekends: August 5-6 and August 12-13, 2023. The suspension is due to necessary track replacement work and will last from 11:59 PM on Saturday to 11:59 PM on Sunday of each mentioned weekend. In other words, there is no train service all of Sunday on each of the weekends.

Affected Period:

  • First Weekend: August 5-6, 2023
  • Second Weekend: August 12-13, 2023

Last Trains Before Closure:

  • To Newark: Departing World Trade Center at 12:00 AM Sunday, August 6
  • To World Trade Center: Departing Newark at 11:55 PM Saturday, August 5

First Trains After Closure:

  • To Newark: Departing World Trade Center at 11:55 PM Sunday, August 6
  • To World Trade Center: Departing Newark at 11:55 PM Sunday, August 6

Continued Service:

There will still be PATH train service between Newark and Harrison stations on the New York-bound platforms. For services to New York, customers at Harrison Station should take PATH to Newark Penn Station.

Alternative Options:

During this service suspension, NJ TRANSIT will be cross-honoring customers with several alternative options:

  1. Train Service: Between Newark Penn Station and New York Penn Station.
  2. Shuttle Bus Service: Between Journal Square Station and Newark Penn Station. Follow posted signage to the NJ TRANSIT shuttle bus labeled "PATH Shuttle."


The closure of this vital segment of the PATH network will undoubtedly have an impact on the daily commute of many individuals. While necessary for the long-term reliability and safety of the system, passengers should plan their travel accordingly to accommodate the changes.

While this temporary closure may bring inconveniences to daily commuters, it is a crucial step in ensuring the continued efficiency and safety of the rail system. The collaboration between PATH and NJ TRANSIT to provide alternative transportation options demonstrates a concerted effort to minimize the disruption. Passengers are encouraged to stay informed through official channels and plan their journeys with these changes in mind. The renewed track will ultimately offer a more reliable service for all who depend on the PATH system.
