North Carolina DOT to host meeting on proposed Raleigh station


The North Carolina Department of Transportation (NCDOT) will host an informational public meeting Aug. 6 regarding a proposed train station in Raleigh.

The proposed station, to be located at 510 W. Martin St., would replace the existing downtown station, which is not large enough to accommodate riders, NCDOT officials said in a prepared statement.

Also, track will be upgraded in the area to improve freight- and passenger-rail operations, they said.

The city of Raleigh recently received a grant to begin designing and constructing the station. NCDOT, city and Triangle Transit Authority officials have worked together on the proposed station, which would accommodate intercity passenger-rail service in the near term, and commuter-rail, bus, taxis, bicycles and other transportation modes in the near future.
