Parkesburg Station improvements are being developed to provide ADA accessibility, enhance aesthetics and passenger amenities, expand parking, and improve vehicular and pedestrian access.
PennDOT is working with Amtrak to phase in the following proposed improvements:
- 500-foot-long high-level (accessible) platforms with canopies;
- Station lighting;
- Expanded parking; and
- Improved pedestrian and vehicular access.
Preliminary design of station improvements was initiated in April 2017.
PennDOT is leading the project with additional funding by Amtrak, the Federal Railroad Administration, and the Federal Transit Administration.
