New Station

  • Proposed locations of new station, parking garage, and adjacent office building/learning center (Oct 2014)

  • The new station will be constructed on Fleetwood Street just east of the historic building.
  • Environmental clearance received March 2012.
  • Development team selected by Coatesville Redevelopment Authority in Summer 2013.
  • Conceptual design is being reviewed by Amtrak.
  • Extensive public and local stakeholder involvement is ongoing to identify key issues, facilitate ADA and bicycle/pedestrian access and safety, and enhance intermodal connectivity.
  • Project will include adequate parking to support growing ridership.
  • PennDOT has committed approximately $20 million to the Coatesville Station project and is coordinating with the City of Coatesville Redevelopment Authority, which is leading the overall urban redevelopment initiative.
  • Other partners include Amtrak, the Federal Transit Administration, Chester County, the City of Coatesville, and the Chester County Economic Development Council.
