This project will maximize parking and provide lighting, sidewalk improvements, and ADA ramps to accommodate growing ridership and improve access to the train station.
This project involves reconstructing the existing parking lot southwest of the intersection of North Duke Street and McGovern Avenue at the former Fulton Bank, south of Lancaster Station. The lot will be expanded to include the unimproved lot adjoining the existing parking area fronting North Duke Street. The project includes demolition of the existing facilities and parking lot reconstruction, to include:
- New lighting and utilities;
- 56 parking spaces;
- An access gate;
- Security cameras;
- New concrete curbs;
- Sidewalks with ADA-compliant ramps;
- Drainage features, including two rain gardens;
- New bituminous pavement; and
- Parking lot line painting and signage.
Construction began in July 2020 and is expected to be completed by early 2021. The existing parking lot will remain closed to the public through construction completion.
PennDOT is leading the project with additional funding by the Federal Transit Administration.
