BURLINGTON, Vt. (WCAX) - Another sign of Amtrak’s imminent arrival in Burlington next year -- crews put in new rails at the Flynn Avenue crossing last week.

VTrans says the College Street crossing remains closed as crews work on improvements in front of the ECHO Center. That’s expected to reopen next Friday.

The Ethan Allen Express train is being extended north from Rutland to Burlington with stops in Middlebury and Vergennes. Service is expected to begin later next year.
