NEWARK, Del. — Delaware Gov. John Carney, elected officials, and rail transit leaders recently held a groundbreaking ceremony in Newark to celebrate the start of construction on the city’s new regional transportation center.

The $50-million project calls for the construction of a new, modern train station that would replace the existing Southeastern Pennsylvania Transportation Authority-served facility. With modern amenities and accessibility improvements, the new station will feature Americans with Disabilities Act-compliant high level platforms, expanded parking options, and bathrooms.

Funded in part by a $10 million federal transportation grant, the phased project also includes improvements to the station’s external appearance and road access. The project is also being funded by county and city dollars and funds from the University of Delaware. The first phase of the project is scheduled for completion in the early part of 2018.

SEPTA’s Wilmington-Newark line serves the current station located along Amtrak’s Northeast Corridor.
