The project elements include rail infrastructure, public concourses, parking, bus and taxi facilities, retail and public open spaces, according to a notice posted on the FRA website.

The agency is seeking public input as it prepares a draft environmental impact statement (EIS). The EIS review process will wrap up with a record of decision from the FRA and a conceptual design for the expansion project.

The Union Station Redevelopment Corp. and Amtrak are proposing to expand and modernize Union Station to support current and future rail service and operational needs.
