Amtrak Completes Delaware Third Track Project

WILMINGTON, Del. – Amtrak, the Delaware Department of Transportation (DelDOT) and the Delaware Transit Corporation (DTC) recently completed a $71.2 million project to increase capacity between Wilmington and Newark, Del. on the Northeast Corridor. This project, which represents a major infrastructure expansion project in the Northeast Corridor, included installation of 1.5 miles of a new, electrified main line third track between Ragan and Yard interlockings, bridge replacement, and other improvements, eliminating a previous two track bottleneck. The change will result in improved on-time performance, reduction in delays, and overall improvement in this section of railroad.
