One new or improved station. Construction of new pedestrian bridge and high level platform will improve accessibility to the platform and trains. The new construction will eliminate existing track level and “mini-high” platforms. Because of FTA grants associated with this project, there is not a standard 80/20 split. This project is being constructed under several construction contracts, with some phases complete, some under construction and others in final design. Impacts of the project are expected to improve rail operations, safety, movement of freight and passengers along the NEC between Wilmington and Newark. These expectations will be quantified after the work is completed, which is anticipated for 2023.
