 Project Highlights

Purpose

A new station is being developed to provide ADA accessibility and improve station function and amenities while supporting station-area revitalization.
 

​Description

This $65 million project, which includes design, station and streetscape construction, Amtrak support, and Amtrak trackwork, will result in a new station on Fleetwood Street just east of the existing historic station building. The current building (owned by Amtrak and leased to the City of Coatesville) has been closed for more than 25 years. The original site is on a curve of the track that prevents construction of ADA-accessible platforms and necessitated the shift in the station location.  

The new, accessible station along Fleetwood Street between 3rd and 4th avenues will feature:

The bridge that takes 4th Avenue under the railroad will be converted into a pedestrian underpass, and a tunnel liner will be installed to eliminate water leakage. Trackwork improvements include a bypass track to be constructed by Amtrak to facilitate freight train traffic past the new high-level platforms.

Fleetwood Street will be reconfigured to improve access to the new station and to include bus stop and "kiss-and-ride" areas. The layout will include a plaza and space for commercial and retail development on the south side of Fleetwood Street opposite the new station location, on property owned by the City/Redevelopment Authority (RDA).

PennDOT established a station working group to ensure local involvement with the station design as well as the related streetscape projects for 3rd and 4th avenues. The streetscape work was completed in advance of station construction to ensure safe and accessible pedestrian and bicycle connections to the new station location while also providing aesthetic, drainage, and parking improvements. 
 

status

Station design was completed in mid-2021. An October 2021 groundbreaking ceremony officially kicked off the construction phase, and contractors began construction in January 2022.​ ​
 

Funding Partners

Work is being led by PennDOT with support from Chester County, the City of Coatesville, and the Coatesville Redevelopment Authority and additional funding by the Federal Transit Administration.​​
