Future of Rail – Washington Union Station Concourse Modernization

The Passenger Concourse Modernization Project will be the first set of improvements to come to life as part of the Washington Union Station’s 2nd Century plan.

The 2nd Century plan is a comprehensive improvement initiative that seeks to triple passenger capacity and double train capacity over the next 20 years. The Claytor Concourse, Union Station’s intercity and commuter concourse, will be reconfigured and modernized to double its capacity. The project will help alleviate congested conditions and enhance passenger comfort and accessibility, while enlivening the space with new architectural finishes and natural light.
