Full Michigan Amtrak Service Restored

Published on : Thursday, November 3, 2016

Amtrak logoAmtrak and the Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT) have competed this year’s construction season for Wolverine Service trains. Customers can again book travel with three complete round-trips daily, plus additional service on select days around the Thanksgiving holiday.

 
This continues the improvement of state-owned railroad infrastructure as part of Michigan’s Accelerated Rail Program and will result in improved reliability and a smoother ride for customers, along with an expansion of the Midwest’s first 110 mph Amtrak service.

 
MDOT contractors, including Amtrak, completed a busy construction season in Calhoun and Jackson counties on 41 miles of track. This included replacing 26,000 railroad ties, repairing or installing 15 track switches, realigning or modifying 29 railroad curves, repairing 23 railroad grade crossings and improving road profiles at crossings. Amtrak also continued to improve the signal system controlling rail traffic on MDOT’s rail segment east of Kalamazoo.
