MDOT MTA Begins $4.7 Million Renovation of BWI Airport Rail Station on August 27

Station to Remain Open During Construction

BALTIMORE, MD (AUGUST 22, 2018) – For the convenience and comfort of its MARC Train customers, the Maryland Department of Transportation Maryland Transit Administration (MDOT MTA) is renovating and expanding the BWI Thurgood Marshall Airport rail station. The $4.7 million renovation will include an expanded waiting area, new ticketing facilities, a concession area and restrooms. Construction is expected to begin on August 27 and will last 14 months.

“Our customers truly will appreciate the new features in the renovated MARC station at BWI,” said Andrea Farmer, MDOT MTA’s director of MARC Train. “We will provide not only a more aesthetically pleasing station, but a much more functional facility to best meet the needs of our riders.”

During construction, the station will continue to be open for both train and bus service. A temporary station at the north end of the site will continue to provide MARC and Amtrak customers with ticketing services, a waiting area and restrooms. Informational signage as well as new pedestrian and vehicular traffic pathways will be established to facilitate pedestrian access.   A new handicap accessible ramp will be built near the temporary station for public access to the temporary station.

MDOT MTA is one of the largest multi-modal transit systems in the United States. MDOT MTA operates LocalLink and commuter buses, Light RailLink, Metro SubwayLink, Maryland Area Regional Commuter (MARC) Train service and a comprehensive Mobility (paratransit) system. MDOT MTA’s goal is to provide safe, efficient and reliable transit across Maryland with world-class customer service.
