Design, Planning, Environmental, Surveying



The Hamilton Train Station, located on the northeast corridor, serves as a central transportation hub to the township and a critical midpoint link between the Trenton Transit Center in New Jersey’s capital and the Princeton Branch. T.Y. Lin International performed planning studies and preliminary design for expansion of the New Jersey Transit surface parking facilities at the station and for redevelopment of the surrounding properties as a consultant to New Jersey Transit. The structured parking solution was developed to increase capacity, improve accessibility to the station and to make additional land available for transit-oriented development. An alternative delivery method was ultimately selected for the first phase of the project consisting of the parking structure and pedestrian bridge link over the northeast corridor main lines.

Project Highlights:

  • Traffic Engineering, analysis and signal design
  • Geotechnical investigation
  • Structural reviews
  • Complete site/civil engineering
  • Railroad and utility coordination
  • Survey and mapping
  • Environmental permitting

T.Y. Lin International also served as the site and structural design consultant to the developer selected by NJ Transit in a Design/Build Contract to design, build, operate and maintain the proposed parking structure, containing five levels of structured parking and a 1,300-vehicle capacity.

The major technical responsibilities on the project included survey and site investigations of the property, geotechnical investigation and foundation design for the parking structure, site design for the garage including pedestrian and site access improvements, design of signal modifications at the facility accesses, storm water management design, and environmental permitting.

Advancement of the design and construction required extensive coordination with New Jersey Transit. Construction of the facility, including the launching of the pedestrian overpass over the tracks, was completed without disruption of service on the Northeast Corridor.
