Wilmington, Delaware is naming its train station after one of its favorite sons: Vice President Biden.
Philadelphia reported Tuesday that a ceremony will be held on Saturday to name the renovated rail station after the former Delaware senator. The station's new name will be the Joseph R. Biden, Jr., Railroad Station.
Biden famously used to commute between Wilmington and the nation's capital via Amtrak during his three-plus decades in the Senate.
A $37.7 million renovation project was recently wrapped up at the Wilmington train station. Construction took almost two years. $20 million from the federal stimulus act, which Biden helped oversee, went toward the project.
The Wilmington station is one of the busiest in the nation, and is a part of Amtrak's heavily-traveled Northeast corridor.
