DPS wins Amtrak Auto Train Station Renovation Contract

Doyon Project Services (DPS) was notified by the National Railroad Passenger Corporation (Amtrak) on December 3rd that the company will be awarded a contract to renovate and upgrade the Amtrak Auto Train Station located in Lorton, VA.  This $5,100,000 fixed price contract was a best value award from Amtrak, and follows three years of work on similar Amtrak projects in the Western United States as a subcontractor to Jacobs Engineering.

The work includes the complete demolition and replacement of the existing station platform with a new 1,470 Ft long ADA compliant concrete passenger platform with new lighting, railing, tactile pavers, safety striping, and ramps. The work will also include the renovation of the station restrooms to be ADA compliant with revisions to the mechanical, plumbing, electrical, and interior finishes. Sitework renovations include new project signage, sidewalks, curbs, asphalt paving, pavement markings, railing, and site utilities. The work will be completed at night in order to minimize disruption to the daily station operations. Work will be sequenced to keep the station fully operational, since 265,000 passengers transit through the facility annually. The Lorton station anchors one end of Amtrak’s Auto Train service, with the other station located 900 miles away in Sanford, FL. Using the Auto Train service, passengers are able to travel with their vehicles – cars, vans, motorcycles, small trailers, SUV’s between the two stations.
