Effective through December 2015

The Rhode Island Department of Transportation (RIDOT) is working to upgrade the southern entrance plaza (downtown side) of the Providence station. This construction is scheduled to continue through December 2015. During construction, the parking garage entrance is relocated; parking is restricted to lower level. Existing taxi stands are relocated to Gaspee Street. Railroad Street is closed; a pedestrian detour is in effect.

Allow Extra Time: Due to construction taking place around the station, passengers should allow an extra 45 minutes of travel time.

Entering the Station: Access to the Railroad St. and Park Row West (the Downtown side) of the station is closed. Passengers can enter the station on Gaspee Street.

Parking is Limited: The number of parking spaces is limited due to the top level of the garage being closed during construction. Parking is available in the Fidelity Building, at the Providence Place Mall, and at smaller parking lots within a few blocks of the station.

Drop-off and Pick-up: Passengers are encouraged to arrange to be dropped off and picked up at the station. Drop off and pick up is permitted only on the Gaspee Street side of the station. Taxis are only accessible from the Gaspee Street side of the station.

Safety First: For your safety, you should avoid the construction area whenever possible and be mindful of the following:

  • Be careful as you walk near the construction area.
  • Stay at a safe distance from machinery and moving construction equipment.
  • Watch out for any tripping hazards, such as construction debris or uneven surfaces.

Effective Until Further Notice

Construction has started on the $29.8 million Amtrak Rochester Intermodal Station in Rochester, NY, which will reduce regional delays by expanding track service at the station, increase functionality through a new and redesigned concourse and enhance the overall passenger experience in the larger, modern station. Construction is expected to be completed by 2017. This project will affect access to the station as follows:

  • Passengers should allow additional travel time to the station.
  • Parking has been reduced and the entrance and exit traffic patterns have changed.
  • Passengers are encouraged to be dropped off and picked up as it may be difficult to find a parking space.
  • Pay parking is also available at the Mortimer Parking garage, 72 North Clinton Avenue, $7.00/day. This garage is several blocks south of the Amtrak station. Passengers must make their own arrangements for transportation between the parking garage and the station.

Upon completion, the station will include two new dedicated passenger tracks. Presently, only one track adjoins the station and passenger and freight trains share it, often having to slow or wait outside of the station area until the track is clear. Having two additional tracks will reduce delays, allowing two passenger trains traveling in opposite directions to stop at the new station and freight trains to pass when passenger trains are stopped at the station.

It will have a two-sided, high-level passenger platform that will be accessed through a concourse from the station. It will greatly improve functionality, helping passengers to enter and exit trains more easily, reducing train delays. The project, including the new station, passenger concourse, platform and passenger information display systems, will be fully compliant with the Americans with Disabilities Act.

Project Information

Amtrak and the New York State Department of Transportation (NYSDOT) are embarking on a major effort to improve the rail infrastructure and station facilities along the 75 mile Hudson Line. In April 2011, NYSDOT received $154 million in high speed rail grant funding under the ARRA HSIPR program for the Empire Corridor. This funding is supporting the Hudson Line Improvement Program, which will design and construct approximately $181 million (combination of grant and state funds) of infrastructure improvements.

The advancement of the Hudson Line Improvement Program was made possible by an historic agreement between Amtrak and CSX Transportation executed on December 1, 2012, making Amtrak responsible for the operation, dispatching and maintenance of approximately 100 miles of the Empire Corridor between Poughkeepsie and Schenectady. This change in service coupled with the project improvements will provide the capacity needed to expand rail service, improve service reliability and decrease trip times along the Empire Corridor.
