Amtrak Upgrades Celebrated at Connersville Station

Amtrak customers now have a smoother, brighter and more accessible journey with the completion of a $1.9 million project at the Connersville, Ind. station. The Amtrak Cardinal travels three-days-weekly between New York and Chicago, with a stop in Connersville.

Amtrak, working with the City of Connersville, made improvements that include the construction of a new concrete platform meeting the specifications of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). Other upgrades include the installation of new lighting, ramp, new connection to the public right of way and upgrades to the parking lot.

Amtrak has served Connersville since 1990, when members of the local Rotary Club raised funds to erect a brick shelter along the now-improved platform. Nearby is the station built in 1914 by the Cincinnati, Hamilton and Dayton Railroad, a building in railroad use today by CSX Transportation. The new platform harmonizes with the historic station with tint and texture.
