Infrastructure Renewal

Summer Renewal Work Begins June 28

Amtrak will continue its Infrastructure Renewal program at New York Penn Station this summer from June 28 through September 2, by performing state of good repair work on a critical interlocking at the east end of the station essential to the movement of trains into and out of New York Penn Station: JO Interlocking, which directs Amtrak, Long Island Rail Road and NJ TRANSIT trains heading east and west from the East River Tunnels.

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

What does this mean for my commute?
