Roanoke Amtrak Service Moving Forward


Roanoke, VA – The area is a step closer to getting extended Amtrak service to Roanoke.

Governor McDonnell announced Thursday that the Department of Rail and Public Transportation and Norfolk Southern have entered into an agreement to improve all rail infrastructure between Lynchburg and Roanoke.

They will add tracks and realign existing rail, and add a platform and train servicing facility in downtown Roanoke.

Design work will begin immediately.
