New parking slated for Princeton Junction station

There will be 650 new commuter parking spaces at township-owned property on Alexander Road in West Windsor.
The groundbreaking is set for spring of 2012 and construction is due to end at the end of the year.

   Providing additional resident parking is an important next step in our plans to ensure redevelopment benefits the entire West Windsor, said Mayor Shing-Fu Hsueh in a press release.

   Drivers will have to pay a fee when they park. The cost is not determined yet, the mayor said. West Windsor residents will get a parking decal and pay a lower fee.

   The township is partnering with the West Windsor Parking Authority and will share the lots revenues. The township administration has been working with the Parking Authority for the past two years to develop the lot.
   The township will be working with the state Department of Transportation to get a approval for a connection between Alexander and Washington roads. Also, the township has working with the state Department of Environmental Protection and New Jersey Transit throughout this process.

   The lot will be built on a former composting and a landfill site. This will be the next step to the train station redevelopment for the township, according to the press release.

   At Monday nights council meeting, Mayor Hsueh presented a map that was designed by ACT Engineers Inc. He shared the plans with the council and residents at Monday nights council meeting.

   With the recent approval to develop the InterCap site the township is providing additional parking to ensure redevelopment benefits to its residents, according to the mayors release. InterCap will pay for its own plans and will have to pay for 24.4 acres of the traffic roadway improvements.

   According to the mayor there are four components to the project on the former landfill site, which are preliminary assessment, site investigation, remedial investigation and remediation action, which would allow the project to start after capping the site.

   The DEP has to approve the site before starting the project. It will fund the three parts of the project. The West Windsor Parking Authority will fund the last component of the project, according to Mayor Hsueh.

   We have to make sure we follow the state regulations, step by step, Mayor Hsueh said.

   I dont expect long delays. It is going according to plan, said Bob Harry, township administrator.

   The Planning Board will review the concept plan in November.
