The state Department of Transportation on Monday is expected to discuss whether to budget $1.5 million to rehabilitate four miles of track in Wharton and Roxbury that would help support increased rail traffic at a proposed trash transfer station.

The meeting, to be held from 2 to 4 p.m. at DOT headquarters in Ewing, is designed to outline statewide projects proposed for inclusion in the New Jersey State Rail Plan for fiscal year 2004-05.

Roxbury and Morris County officials oppose the Morristown & Erie Railroad's plan to build a transfer station in the vicinity of Berkshire Valley Road and Route 46 in Roxbury that would accept at least 600 tons a day of construction debris. It would be brought there by truck and taken away by trains.
