Since 1896, the NJ Transit Rutherford Train Station on Station Square has played a pivotal role in the development of Rutherford, and has been an anchor for the town's main street. While important to the community, the train station was also disconnected, with a wide, poorly functioning traffic circle in Station Square. PPS recommended reconnecting the main street with the station, improving bicycle access and making the station a focal point for new infill development. The focal point of the project is a new modern roundabout at the station along with pedestrian improvements on all streets that lead like a spoke from the station.
