Amtrak selected Skanska to rehabilitate three maintenance facilities for the next-generation Acela high-speed rail service on the Northeast Corridor between Washington, D.C., and Boston, Skanska announced today in a press release.

Under the $40 million contract, Skanska will make structural modifications and industrial equipment upgrades to three maintenance facilities built 20 years ago.

The updates will accommodate Amtrak's new trains being placed into service in 2021.

Construction began earlier this year, and is scheduled for completion in first-quarter 2021.
