Penn Line trackwork shifting to southbound track
Starting on Tuesday, June 19, Amtrak will shift trackwork between Odenton and Bowie from Track #2 (the middle track) to Track #3 (the southbound track). The April 23 Penn Line schedule was designed to accommodate this change, however as was the case with the previous trackwork project, trains may experience 5-10 minute delays traveling through the affected area.
Passengers boarding southbound trains at Odenton and Bowie State University stations will use temporary bridge plates to board trains on the middle track. Please remain on the regular concrete platform until directed to board the train by Conductors and permit detraining passengers to exit first. There will likely be additional delays during the first week as train crews adjust to the very precision braking and train spotting required to line up the train doors with the temporary platforms.
We thank you in advance for your patience and understanding as Amtrak performs necessary trackwork to ensure a safe and smooth ride for all Northeast Corridor customers.
