Fargo Station to be Renovated in 2016

Work is expected to get underway next February or March on modernizing the Amtrak station in Fargo, North Dakota.

The project will bring station into compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act. Fargo is served by the daily Chicago-Seattle/Portland Empire Builder.

Amtrak said it will spend $1.3 million to upgrade the station’s platform, doorways, bathrooms, water fountain and other areas. The parking lot will be redone and the ticket counter lowered so that wheelchair users can see over it.

Amtrak officials are also looking at remodeling the station in Detroit Lakes, Minnesota, to bring it into ADA compliance.
