Greenfield platform extension project

Status | Work is expect to start soon

 

This page provides an overview of a project that is now underway to extended the high-level station platform in Greenfield, Massachusetts.

The extension of the platform will allow for simultaneous level access boarding/disembarking of three passenger cars (one door each of the lead and rear cars / both doors of the middle car).

The projected completion date for this project is July 19, 2019.

 

In summary, the project includes the following components:

  • the high-level platform will be extended from its current length of 46 feet to a a length of 146 feet
  • the canopies will be extended to cover the entire length of the expanded platform
  • new ramps and stairs will be constructed to access the platform extensions
  • Existing ramps, stairs, handrails and guard fence will be modified where required to coordinate with the new construction
  • Closed-circuit video cameras will be added along with station wayfinding signage
