COATESVILLE — As work is underway to build a $65 million ADA-compliant train station, city revitalization is booming.
The new station, at Fourth Avenue and Fleetwood Street, just to the east of the historic station building, is on schedule and is expected to be completed by late 2025, according to PennDOT.
Pat Gardiner is the director of construction services for Michael Baker International and talked about the ongoing work at the train station.
“We are about 40% of the way into the project with an anticipated 2025 completion date,” Gardiner said. “Throughout the first two months of 2024, we will be working on the upper portion of the south wall on the Fleetwood Street side.
“We are installing approximately three dozen 30- to 35-foot deep helical piles, connected by beams, that the platforms will rest on. In addition, we are working on waterline relocation along Coates Street.”
James Logan, the City of Coatesville manager, is enthusiastic.
