Phase 2 Northern Expansion
SunRail is Central Florida’s commuter rail system connecting the City of Orlando, Orange, Osceola, Seminole, and Volusia counties. The current system spans 49 miles and services 16 stations. The construction of the Phase 2 North expansion includes the addition of a new SunRail station adjacent to the current DeLand Amtrak Station situated on the existing Central Florida Rail Corridor. The project will add 12.2 miles to the SunRail corridor expanding service from the DeBary SunRail Station to the new DeLand Station with a projected opening in the summer of 2024. The aesthetic appearance of the station will align with nearby historic DeLand, feature a unique center platform design and bring additional rail enhancements including six miles of double tracking for increased capacity.
WHAT TO EXPECT
The first six months of development will consist of design and construction teams surveying the current DeLand Amtrak Station as well as it’s neighboring properties and relevant grade crossings. Information of upcoming construction schedules that impact public roads, traffic and private properties will be delivered through electronic and mailed notices as well as through the distribution of construction alert flyers. Maintaining a clear and consistent communication with the residents and businesses of Volusia county is a priority to FDOT. Please take notice to all future updates.
The Phase 2 Northern Expansion is scheduled to begin construction in spring 2023 and is currently scheduled to open by summer 2024.
Construction Cost: $42.8 Million
