AMTRAK Lancaster Station
AMTRAK's Lancaster Station Improvement Project consists of upgrading and renovating the historic Lancaster Train Station. This station was originally built for the Pennsylvania Railroad in 1929 and is undergoing a ten year modernization and improvement initiative.
Credited in large part to an increase in AMTRAK service between Philadelphia and Harrisburg, ridership on the Keystone Corridor has grown more than 62 percent since 2002. Over 1,000 passengers use this train station daily. These overdue and much needed improvements are intended to make Lancaster more accessible to commuters, visitors and the business community.
The scope of the improvements include: increased parking; rehabilitation of building interior and exterior; new heating/ventilation and air conditioning system; upgraded landscaping; a new waiting/ticketing area; retail and visitor information kiosk in main lobby of first floor; and retail and meeting room space on second floor.
Envision Consultants serves as a subconsultant to CH&E Construction, the General Contractor. Envision is responsible for CPM Scheduling services, including the development of the baseline schedule with follow-up monthly progress updates to the baseline schedule.
