B&P Tunnel Replacement Program Community Outreach

The B&P Tunnel Replacement Program will be completed in phases. Work is currently underway on final design and the initiation of property. Early action work (e.g., demolition) is planned to start in 2022, with the Warwick Avenue bridge replacement planned for 2023. Major construction is anticipated to begin in 2024 with underground tunneling starting in 2026 and final construction and tunnel entering service in 2032 - 2033. Amtrak has committed to continuous Community Engagement throughout the duration of the program.

To illustrate Amtrak’s commitment to Community Engagement the Outreach team will develop and maintain an Engagement Schedule to work with the community to identify Investment Priorities, solicit feedback on program activities and to share updates on program activities. The schedule will help to ensure that:

  • Community members are updated in a timely manner
  • Feedback and input are being solicited equitably
  • Information is shared about future construction activities and impacts on commuters, business and residential property owners, and other project stakeholders
  • A direct contact is provided for community leaders and residents throughout the process
  • A forum is identified for addressing community concerns
