“The Federal Railroad Administration (FRA) is continuing to refine plans for the future of Union Station, which include preserving historical elements, facilitating inter-modal travel, and expanding rail capacity.
Since the project’s last public meeting in October 2016, the project team sifted through the conceptual elements, which will inform the alternatives to be presented to the public on March 22. The FRA summarized these results and comments in their Concept Screening Report completed in July 2017.
Several elements of the plan have changed. The arrangement of the proposed new concourses has been scaled back from Amtrak’s 2012 Union Station Master Plan.”
