As part of the Infrastructure Renewal Program, Amtrak has announced a series of track renewal projects will begin on Friday at New York Penn Station. Work on the projects, Amtrak said, will take place on weekends and a revised operations schedule is set to begin Jan. 8.

Work for the projects is expected to conclude on May 28 of this year. Amtrak expects minor modifications to weekday schedules at Penn Station.

The revised schedule includes:

  • Cancellation of Northeast Regional Trains 110 from Washington DC to New York Penn and 127 from Penn Station to Washington DC;
  • Northbound Keystone Train 640 will terminate at Newark Penn Station;
  • Southbound Keystone Train 643 will originate at Newark Penn Station;
  • Southbound Train 173 is stopping at Newark Airport.

“The project is occurring in the area of Track 15, which requires a section of concrete demolition and replacement (similar to the work on Track 10 during the summer of 2017), and Track 18, which requires localized concrete demolition with complex steel hardware replacement and rail renewal,” Amtrak said in a news release. “In addition, Amtrak is renewing and replacing three turnouts in ‘C’ interlocking, which directs Amtrak and Long Island Rail Road trains to routes heading east and to Sunnyside Yard.”

The Infrastructure Renewal Program at New York Penn Station is one element of Amtrak’s plan to modernize infrastructure and equipment along the Northeast Corridor, Amtrak said.
