Amtrak plans $7 billion makeover of Union Station in D.C.

August 08, 2012

Amtrak recently unveiled a plan for a $7 billion overhaul of Union Station in Washington, D.C. It includes the addition of a train shed, construction of new passenger concourses and street entrances, as well as commercial, retail, and residential spaces. Amtrak said the renovations will make it easier for the station to accommodate high-speed trains in the future.

“Washington Union Station is an integral part of the Northeast transportation network, facing urgent capacity issues and a need to expand to support increasing ridership growth across all services,” said Amtrak CEO Joe Boardman. “This plan will transform the station into a world-class transportation hub to serve the region and the mobility needs of generations of passengers yet to come.”
