NORTHEAST CORRIDOR HIGH SPEED RAIL PASSENGER SERVICE IMPROVEMENT PROGRAM. TASK 12.1. CORRIDOR STATIONS REQUIREMENTS

The Railroad Revitalization and Regulatory Reform Act of 1976 authorizes the establishment of regularly scheduled and dependable intercity rail passenger service between Boston, Mass. and Washington, DC, including appropriate intermediate stops. As a basis for the development of the Federal Railroad Administration design and construction program to significantly improve intercity rail passenger service facilities at selected stations along the Northeast Corridor, this report provides the background material and methodology used in the development of the requirements for the design of the Stations. It documents the review of earlier work, the development of performance standards, the evaluation of existing conditions, the development of concept plans, and the evaluation process for selection of recommended plans. Finally it outlines the format for subsequent development of schematic plans and breakdown of work units into work elements.
