Paoli Station Project Completed

The station overhaul project in Paoli, Pennsylvania, was celebrated on Sept. 23 with a ribbon cutting ceremony.

The ceremony involving officials of the city, state, Amtrak and SEPTA, marked the completion of the $48 million Paoli Station Accessibility Improvement Project.

The project created a new center high-level platform, which required removing tracks 2 and 3 of the four-track former Pennsylvania Railroad Main Line.

New elevators and a stair tower were built to connect a pedestrian overpass to the new platform.

The two-year project also included ADA improvements, upgrades to parking, and track changes to provide greater operational flexibility for SEPTA Amtrak’s Keystone service trains.

Amtrak owns the station, which is served by 25 Keystone Service trains and the New York-Pittsburgh Pennsylvanian.

SEPTA serves Paoli with 78 trains between and five bus routes.
