The agency’s board approved the additional funding at its monthly meeting Wednesday.

It will allow work to continue while NJ Transit awaits word on how much it will receive from the federal government for long-term flood prevention projects.

The $17 million approved Wednesday will go to engineering and consulting companies that have been involved in repairing hundreds of damaged rail cars and locomotives as well as the flooded Hoboken Terminal and Meadows Maintenance Complex yard in Kearny.

This week NJ Transit was approved to seek nearly $1.3 billion in federal aid for flood mitigation and protection projects for its terminals, tracks, electrical substations and other infrastructure.
