The projects are being funded through the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act economic stimulus program. They include maintenance facility upgrades, bridge replacements, track work, security enhancements, and station improvements.

An announcement Tuesday said that "in support of small and minority-owned businesses, Jacobs and Amtrak will set individual goals for significant levels of small and disadvantaged business enterprise participation, and contract projects to create jobs that will further economic recovery and provide long-term benefits."
