The North Carolina Department of Transportation (NCDOT) will host a public meeting Oct. 24 to gather opinions on a second passenger-rail platform proposed for the Amtrak station in Kannapolis, North Carolina.
The existing Kannapolis Station platform accommodates Carolinian and Piedmont service on only one side of the double-track North Carolina Railroad/Norfolk Southern Main Line.
NCDOT is proposing to add a second platform to improve overall rail operations in the corridor, NCDOT officials said in a press release.
The proposed construction also includes building a pedestrian overpass from South Ridge Avenue and South Main Street.
In addition to this week's public meeting, NCDOT will accept comments via email and phone through Nov. 7.
All comments will be reviewed and considered for the final design, department officials said.
