Amtrak awards the Penn Coach Yard Heavy Maintenance Facility project to Herzog

Amtrak selected Herzog Contracting Corp. (Herzog) to design and construct a new Heavy Maintenance Facility near the 30th Street Station in Philadelphia, PA.


The facility will provide Amtrak crews with state-of-the-art maintenance and repair, inspection, and cleaning facilities for Amtrak’s existing and new Amtrak Airo and Acela train fleets. Herzog is honored with this project award – it is the first contract to be awarded by Amtrak within a multi-billion-dollar program that will see six major Amtrak maintenance facilities upgraded or built across the U.S.

Herzog has teamed with Dana B. Kenyon, who serves as the project’s dedicated building subcontractor, and TYLin is the lead designer.

The heavy maintenance facility will be constructed within Amtrak’s Penn Coach Yard around ongoing Amtrak and SEPTA yard operations. The facility is designed to inspect, test, and perform maintenance services and cleanings for train sets of various sizes.

“Herzog is honored to be Amtrak’s design-build partner on such an important national rail project,” shared Scott Norman, Herzog’s Executive Vice President. “We are excited to begin working on this project to deliver critical maintenance facility infrastructure upgrades in Philadelphia that will support improved rail service in the Northeast Corridor.”

Preconstruction will begin in 2024.
