Amtrak will serve a new federally and state funded transit hub now under construction in Jacksonville, North Carolina.
Located at Marine Boulevard at Thompson Street, the 15,000-square-foot Jacksonville Transportation Hub will be the city's first building designed to house many public transportation services and be "heavily resistant" to hurricanes, Jacksonville officials said in a press release.
Jacksonville Transit, Onslow United Transit System and Greyhound also will serve the station.
Federal Transit Administration and North Carolina Department of Transportation funds will help pay for the $8.9 million project. However, the city is providing $1.1 million to strengthen the building for hurricane resiliency and other features.
In April, city officials awarded the construction contract to HG Reynolds of Henderson.
