Martinez Station to improve ADA Accessibility

October 25, 2021

MARTINEZ STATION ACCESSIBILITY IMPROVEMENTS

  • Starting Monday, October 25, 2021, construction will take place at the Martinez Station to improve ADA accessibility.

    The work will involve remodeling the ticket counter and restrooms inside the station, as well as  repairing and replacing sections of the boarding platforms outside the depot.

    Our operating partner, Amtrak, under contract with Granite Construction, will be leading this critical project that is part of a federal funding package for improving accessibility at rail stations.

    The accessibility improvements at Martinez are only the beginning for improvements throughout the San Joaquins corridor. As construction plans are finalized for other stations, we will provide additional dates and details.

During construction, San Joaquins passengers can expect typical construction noise from equipment and tools; warning horns or whistles when crews need to clear the tracks; and construction trucks operating in and out of the worksite.

We do not expect this construction project to impact train schedules; however, conductors on trains arriving at the Martinez Station will need to limit the number of doors they open since only a portion of the platform will be available for boarding at a given time.
