Washington Terminal Yard Master Plan

Amtrak selected STV to renovate and expand Washington Terminal Yard so it can better handle passenger volume increases among its three commuter rail clients. The firm served as master planner for the two-phase program to guide design and construction efforts. In addition to planning, STV conducted a comprehensive study of the existing layover/maintenance facility and service operations, and developed plans to address projected increases in the number and frequency of train movements, train lengths, and layover and servicing requirements.
