HARRISBURG, Pa. – Amtrak’s Harrisburg Line Track Renewal project will enter phase three on Monday, June 10th.

The project would be estimated to take two years to complete between Lancaster and Harrisburg. However, Amtrak states that it is approaching the project with “single and full track outages to improve work efficiencies and reduce the duration of customer impacts.” The $122 million project is expected to be completed in November, and the release states the “work progress has been advancing ahead of schedule.” On April 30th, RT&S reported the project had moved to phase 2.

This will lead to minor schedule changes for some Keystone Service trains during both the weekend and on the weekdays. Amtrak reports Pennsylvanian train schedules are unaffected. Below is a full list from Amtrak of changes to train schedules:
