#Pamplona Amtrak announces schedule changes to speed Penn Station track repairs
The Infrastructure Renewal work accelerates several years of already planned improvement of track, switch, and other infrastructure at Penn Station to improve track conditions. The major work will require Amtrak and its partners to operate on a modified schedule from July 10 to Sept. 1, 2017. The work during this summer period will occur in “A Interlocking,” which serves as the critical sorting mechanism routing incoming and outgoing trains that enter and exit Penn Station from the Hudson River tunnel and the LIRR’s West Side Yard to the various station tracks and platforms. The work in A Interlocking includes total track and switch replacement. This work is presently fully-funded.
