Business Journal: More Money For Railyards Track Work

Share | |
(Sacramento, CA)
Tuesday, June 1, 2010
The Capitol Corridor Joint Powers Authority has approved $6.2 million to the city of Sacramento for moving railroad tracks and modernizing the Sacramento Valley Station. The dollars will account for about 15 percent of the $43 million project, which includes relocating about two miles of freight tracks, installing passenger rail tracks and station platforms, as well as providing new tunnels and walkways for passengers and workers. The project will create about 1,200 jobs over the next few years.

Once completed, the effort will help another community down the line — with the introduction of Capitol Corridor service in Placer County. The Sacramento station is the seventh-busiest in the Amtrak system.
