Infrastructure Renewal

Infrastructure Renewal Program at New York Penn Station Continues in Early 2020

Amtrak is continuing its Infrastructure Renewal Program at New York Penn Station throughout Winter 2020 as part of its ongoing maintenance program to improve the station’s infrastructure operations performance and reliability.

What Does this Mean for Your Commute?

Unlike previous years, this round of renewal work will not require any reductions or modifications in service for Amtrak or impact customers.

What Work is Being Performed and When?

This work, which is focused on Tracks 11 and 14, will begin Friday, January 3 and is scheduled to conclude Friday, April 17, 2020. Amtrak is investing $7.6 million for this project, which involves a project scope of removing, replacing, and installing new timber block ties and concrete, collecting and disposing general debris, and installing a safety construction barrier on the platform to protect passengers.

The Infrastructure Renewal Program is one element of Amtrak’s plan to modernize stations, infrastructure and equipment on the Northeast Corridor.
