Commemorative Tribute to U.S. Senator Frank R. Lautenberg

Secaucus Junction is dedicated to U.S. Senator Frank R. Lautenberg (D-NJ) – enacting Public Law 106-346 – as a lasting tribute to the man who championed the federal investment necessary to construct this historic and revolutionary facility. a commemorative tribute has been placed near the center of the rotunda of the Frank R. Lautenberg Station at Secaucus Junction.

Lautenberg – now in his 19th year of service in the U.S. Senate – has also demonstrated his strong support for other transportation projects critical to New Jersey’s success including securing funds for Hudson-Bergen Light Rail and fighting to save and modernize the Amtrak rail system.

The Lautenberg tribute includes an accompanying plaque, which reads:

"It is with great honor, appreciation, and respect that NJ Transit Corporation dedicates the Secaucus Junction Station to the Honorable Frank R. Lautenberg.

During an exemplary and extraordinary productive career in public service that now spans over two decades, Senator Lautenberg has been an energetic advocate for New Jersey and for an efficient passenger rail system so crucial to strengthening the State’s economy; improving the quality of life of its citizens; decreasing traffic congestion; and reducing pollution.

The need for Secaucus Junction was evident for many years; it took Senator Lautenberg, who had the skill, resource, and perseverance to turn a drawing board idea into reality.

This magnificent commuter station stands here as a result of Senator Lautenberg’s vision and leadership. It is, therefore, both a fitting and a tangible tribute to him.

The legacy of this outstanding New Jerseyan, the Honorable Frank R. Lautenberg, will remain present in this building and in our memory. We proudly dedicate Secaucus Junction Station in his honor."
