Paoli Station Project Completed

September 24, 2019

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.

The center platform of the Amtrak station in Paoli, Pennsylvania, has reopened and all passenger boardings will be conducted there.

In a service advisory, Amtrak said all Amtrak and SEPTA passengers will use the center platform that connects to the elevator and stairs, leading to the pedestrian overpass bridge, which accesses the north and south parking lots.

The temporary platforms on the north and south side will no longer be used, as well as the low-level boarding previously used by SEPTA passengers.

Passengers were advised to allow extra time to access the center platform for boarding.
