This project is addressing accessibility issues at the platforms and 1953 station building. The work will also improve passenger safety and provide operational flexibility for trains.
This $36 million project is the first of three proposed phases of major improvements to develop Paoli Station into a fully ADA-compliant, modernized, intermodal passenger station. Phase I work includes:
- A new high-level (accessible) platform between the eastbound and westbound tracks, replacing the existing platforms;
- Elevators and ramps;
- A pedestrian overpass;
- ADA improvements to the existing station building; and
- Upgrades to the station's rail infrastructure.
Construction began in February 2017 and is expected to be completed by mid-2019.
Amtrak is leading the project with additional funding by PennDOT, the Federal Railroad Administration, the Federal Transit Administration, and SEPTA.
