Exton Station renovations will provide ADA accessibility, expand station capacity and efficiency, and enhance passenger amenities.
The $23.4 million project will construct an ADA-compliant station building on the eastbound (south) side of the tracks. The building will offer an indoor waiting area, ticket office, and accessible restrooms. An accessible path will be constructed between the building and the platforms. On the westbound (north) side, a new passenger shelter will be built. Additonal improvements include:
- 500-foot-long high-level (accessible) platforms with canopies and windscreens;
- Expansion of the westbound parking lot, including additional accessible parking;
- Improved pedestrian access and circulation;
- Exterior lighting;
- Additional bicycle racks; and
- Stormwater management facilities.
Parking expansion and site work began in October 2015, and 67 new parking spaces are now available in the westbound (north) lot. Platform construction began in 2016 and is being completed in phases. Project completion is slated for late 2018.
The project is being led by SEPTA with additional funding by PennDOT and the Federal Transit Administration.
