The city of McCook, Nebraska, has approved an Amtrak plan to upgrade the station there.

Amtrak 4Amtrak plans to make the station, which serves the Chicago-San Francisco Bay California Zephyr, ADA compliant and to improve the parking lot.

The project also involves rebuilding the storm water drainage system, which will require the contractor to cut the pavement of the intersction of A Street and Norris Avenue.

The McCook City Council approved the latter without comment.

The council was told that Amtrak plans to construct a new entrance to the station parking lot and install a 15-inch storm sewer pipe that will connect with the city sewer line along A Street.

The plans submitted to the council show that Amtrak will build an ADA-compliant concrete sidewalk along the south edge of the station parking lot.

Existing parking spaces will be marked, improvements will be made to the pavement and brick and new station identifier signs will be installed.
