Claymont train station project to start this spring

Construction on a new Claymont Regional Transportation Center is scheduled to start this spring, a project that once completed will boost economic development in northern New Castle County.

Gov. John Carney, joined by U.S. Senator Tom Carper, U.S. Rep. Lisa Blunt Rochester, Delaware Secretary of Transportation Jennifer Cohan and Delaware Transit Corp. CEO John Sisson, gave an update on the project at a press conference Thursday in Claymont.

“Across our state, we are investing $3.2 billion to modernize our transportation system through 2025, including about $1.7 billion in New Castle County. These are historic levels of investment that will ease congestion, pave the way for future growth, improve safety on our roads and create good-paying jobs,” Carney said. “With the Claymont Train Station project beginning this year and the Newark Train Station project underway, we are investing more than $130 million to improve rail infrastructure in our state to better serve our current ridership and accommodate future riders as well. These investments are an important part of our collective efforts to bring new jobs and residents to Claymont and communities throughout our state.”

The new Claymont train station will be built on part of the 425-acre former Claymont Steel site. Commercial Development Co. is developing the parcel into a mixed-use project called First State Crossing.

The transportation center includes a three-tier parking garage and a station building with restrooms and other amenities.

The Claymont station is the northern-most railroad station in Delaware. It offers 7-day-a-week SEPTA service and serves almost 1,200 weekday riders.
