CAMDEN, NJ — Camden’s major downtown transportation hub is getting a $250 million reboot. Gov. Phil Murphy joined city and county officials, including Mayor Frank Moran, today to announce the first step in the overhaul of Walter Rand Transportation Center at Martin Luther King Boulevard and Broadway. The redevelopment will add more room for independent bus services, parking and charging stations for electric vehicles.
Founded in 1989, the center serves 26 bus routes and the River Line. The transit center also is home to the Broadway station of PATCO Speedline, which offers connections to Philadelphia.
The transportation center is named for a former state senator who pushed for public funding of transportation projects. The transportation center is a five-story parking deck and bus terminal that rests directly above the PATCO rail line and adjacent to the River Line Light Rail System. McKissack provided Resident Engineer and Design Review services for the redevelopment of the transportation center parking deck and its Bus Terminal. The work included repairs of various concrete cracks and spalling as well as the repair of two metal pan stairs that serve the boarding and discharging areas for buses.
