The proposed concepts illustrate potential Project elements, including:

  • Realigned and improved platforms and tracks
  • Additional public concourses
  • New train hall
  • Parking, bus, taxi, bicycle and pedestrian facilities

​You will also have the opportunity to review and comment on screening criteria that will help FRA determine which project concepts will be evaluated in an Environmental Impact Statement (EIS). FRA is preparing the EIS to analyze the proposed project's potential impacts to the environment. This meeting is also part of concurrent National Historic Preservation Act Section 106 consultation.

If you haven't checked out The Miracle Theatre on Barracks Row yet, this weekend would be the perfect time! The original building, the Meader Theater, opened on December 27, 1909 as a vaudeville theatre with a mix of entertainment, including motion pictures and live performances. The building continued to operate as a movie theatre under several names until 1960: Meader, New Meader, Family and Academy. During the theatre’s many transitions and renovations it showed a variety of films including silent, triple-feature westerns and in the late 1950s, foreign films.

The Miracle Theatre will be showing Sully (starring Tom Hanks) on Friday and Saturday. Queen of Katwe and Kubo and the Two Strings will both be playing on Friday and Sunday. To purchase tickets, click here!
