This project will expand parking and pedestrian access to Lancaster Station to accommodate growing ridership and improve accessibility.
The project involves constructing a 250-space parking lot north of Lancaster Station. The design will include driveway access as well as bicycle, pedestrian, transit, and ADA considerations; lighting and landscaping; and drainage and stormwater management facilities.
An accessible sidewalk connection will be constructed along Keller Avenue between the new parking lot and Lititz Pike (US 222), which has an existing sidewalk providing access to the station.
In addition, a pedestrian bridge will be constructed over the Northside Industrial tracks, directly linking the new parking lot to the station's existing passenger bridge.
Design began in 2020 and preliminary engineering was complete by mid-2021. Parking lot construction began in August 2022.
PennDOT is leading the project with additional funding by the Federal Transit Administration.
