Town officials secured $62 million in state and federal funding for the project that would construct a 510-foot boarding platform, traffic infrastructure upgrades, and station signals. The project scope also includes reconfiguring local streets, enhancing mainline trail track, and building an Amtrak maintenance facility.
Leaders will seek a private partner to build additional development around the station such as commercial space, parking garage, and a 30,000-square-foot indoor public market adjoining the station. The market could allow for ticket-vending and airport shuttle operations.
The town selected a preferred development partner for a separate apartment building project.
