The new Amtrak station for Arcadia Valley, Missouri, is almost complete and officials are hoping that service can begin as early as late October.
The platform and and lighting has been installed and the final touches were being put on the fencing. Workers will soon begin work on the the parking lot.
The process to establish a station began in 2012 with local officials working with Amtrak, the Missouri Department of Transporation, Union Pacific and the city of Arcadia.
Much of the work has been spearheaded by a community action group, Our Town Tomorrow.
