Newark SEPTA Train Station

Newark Regional Transportation Center

The Delaware Department of Transportation has embarked on significant transportation upgrades to the Newark Regional Transportation Center. The project includes the replacement of a small station/security facility with a new, full-service Station Building equipped with a Pedestrian Bridge leading to a 950’ Platform constructed within a five-track Right-Of-Way. The existing parking area will be revitalized to accommodate 540 spaces and bus traffic operated by DART. The Southeast Pennsylvania Transit Authority (SEPTA) and Amtrak will also utilize the station. Arora, as part of the team led by Whitman, Requardt & Associates, is providing MEP, fire/life safety, and special systems design for the upgrades.

Due to the requirements of the funding vehicle(s) and the multiple entities involved in the project, including DelDOT, DTA, DART, SEPTA, and Amtrak as owners/users and the City of Newark and the University of Delaware as most interested parties, the project has been divided into three phases. The first phase is the Parking Lot improvements, including lighting, security and electric car charging station. The Station Building is Phase 2 and the Pedestrian Bridge to the new Platform is Phase 3. Each phase will be constructed in sequence with completion expected in 2020.
