Quincy Station Platform Improved

Workers have finished raising the height and width of the boarding platform at the Amtrak station in Quincy, Illinois.

The higher platforms will mean that step boxes will no longer be needed to board or detrain.

The project also involved extending the length of the platform, installing new lighting on the platform and creating a structure for the handicap lift.

Amtrak has said future improvements will include improvements to the parking lot.

The station was built in 1985 and serves the Illinois Zephyr and Carl Sandburg, both of which operate between Chicago and Quincy.

The station is open daily between 5:30 a.m. and 10:30 p.m.
