Amtrak’s Downeaster service from Brunswick, Maine, to Boston will remain suspended through May 31, the Northern New England Passenger Rail Authority (NNEPRA) announced earlier this week.
NNEPRA officials are working with Amtrak, Pan Am Railways Inc. and station communities to prepare for the return of service later this spring, authority officials said in a press release.
Meanwhile, Pan Am Railways has expedited track improvement and maintenance projects along the Downeaster corridor. This spring, the regional will replace timbers on the Fore River rail bridge in Portland, Maine, and 15,000 railroad ties in New Hampshire, as well as perform grade crossing and surfacing work.
Also, train equipment is also undergoing enhanced cleaning.
