Texarkana USA Amtrak Station Exterior and Platform Area

Texarkana, TX


100 East Front Street in downtown Texarkana serves both as an Amtrak station for rail riders and the viewing spot for rail fans in the Arklatex region. A team of the Leadership Texarkana Class of 2022 is working to beautify the exterior and surrounding area of the station in order to provide a clean, bright, safe and enjoyable experience for all. Power washing the exterior brick, purchasing a themed wrap/banner for the painted concrete portion of the building, freshening all signage, cleaning up the landscaping, installation of an awning for protection from weather, installation of festive lighting and providing a photo op and trash receptacles are some of the plans we propose. This area serves as the introduction to our city for travelers passing through and as the leisure destination for rail enthusiasts. As downtown Texarkana revitalization progresses, the train station is important in representing both our past and our future as a hub city in the southern United States.
