HAVRE DE GRACE - Amtrak has requested approximately $7.3 billion in funding from the Federal Railroad Administration (FRA) for planned projects within the Northeast Corridor to upgrade essential infrastructure, enhance stations, and broaden Amtrak's service offerings.

The funds sought would enable the commencement of construction on various significant backlogged projects. In anticipation of the start of major construction, Amtrak and its associates have been progressing these projects through the design and engineering stages.

The Susquehanna River Rail Bridge is among the projects set to receive additional funding, paving the way for construction to begin on the long-promised crossing.

The funding applications were submitted via the Federal-State Partnership for Intercity Passenger Rail Program (FSP-NEC Program).
