(York, PA) Wagman joined DelDOT, elected officials, local dignitaries, project partners and community members on Monday, November 27 at the ribbon cutting ceremony, celebrating the completion of the Claymont Regional Transportation Center, located in Claymont, DE.
This was a $70 million design-build project for the Delaware Department of Transportation. It replaces the aging Claymont Train Station, the first SEPTA stop in Delaware, which offers service to Wilmington, Newark and Philadelphia. The state-of-the-art transportation center features two passenger platforms with canopies, a plaza with ticketing and waiting areas, restrooms, at-grade parking, electronic vehicle charging stations, a three-tiered parking garage and an enclosed pedestrian bridge with views of Philadelphia Pike and the Delaware River.
Additionally, access improvements include new auxiliary lanes, traffic signals, a roundabout, sidewalks, and a
multi-use path that enhances safety and minimizes congestion for transit buses, motorists, pedestrians and bicyclists.
“Through partnership and coordination with DelDOT, Amtrak and our Wagman-JMT design-build team, we are proud to collectively deliver this significant multi-modal project to the community,” states Greg Andricos, Wagman Heavy Civil President and COO. “Furthermore, through ongoing good faith efforts, we maximized the participation of Disadvantaged Business Enterprises (DBEs) on this project, exceeding the contract DBE goals by over $1.7 million dollars.”
Many local and state officials attended and spoke at the event including DelDOT Secretary of Transportation, Nicole Majeski, Delaware Lt. Governor Bethany Hall-Long, U.S. Senators Tom Carper and Chris Coons, U.S. Representative Lisa Blunt Rochester, and Deputy Administrator – Federal Transit Administration, Veronica Vanterpool. Although unable to attend in person, Claymont’s most famous prior resident, President Joe Biden, offered his congratulations via a personal letter which was shared with all celebrants.
The project was a collaboration from Wagman, utilizing Wagman Heavy Civil’s transportation resources, Wagman’s Geotechnical Construction services to provide platform, pile and foundation work, and Wagman Construction’s building expertise.
Service at the station will begin on Monday, December 4, 2023.
