A project to improve the Amtrak platform at the station in Normal, Illinois, is expected to be completed by this summer.
Amtrak has two platforms in Normal and the improvement project is focused on the south platform.
The work will include installing a fence to prevent passengers from crossing the tracks between the platforms. Instead, they will need to walk to Broadway Avenue to cross the rails, which are owned by Union Pacific.
A cable car system will be installed to assist disabled or elderly passengers.
The Normal station, which also served neighboring Bloomington, is a stop for Amtrak’s Chicago-St. Louis Lincoln Service and the Chicago-San Antonio Texas Eagle.
