Project History

This project is being conducted in cooperation with the City of Lexington, as part of the City’s Depot District redevelopment project. The main element of the Depot District is construction of a new Amtrak passenger rail station, which includes boarding platforms, renovation of the historic freight depot as an interim passenger station, and street and parking improvements. In February 2021, the City approved a formal agreement with the NCDOT Rail Division to coordinate various aspects of the rail and roadway improvements, including the 5th Avenue extension and 7th Avenue rail crossing closure.
