 Project Highlights

Purpose

This project will expand parking and pedestrian access to Lancaster Station to accommodate growing ridership and improve accessibility.
 

​Description

This project includes constructing a surface parking lot north of Lancaster Station with a pedestrian bridge over the Northside Industrial tracks, connecting the new parking lot to the station’s existing passenger bridge. The project also includes constructing a Pedestrian Accessible Route along Keller Avenue to link the new surface parking lot and Lititz Pike.

Phase 1: Parking Lot and Pedestrian Accessible Route (PAR)
Phase 1 will provide 220 additional parking spaces in a new lot to the north of Lancaster Station. The design of the parking area will include driveway access as well as bicycle, pedestrian, transit, and ADA considerations, lighting and landscape, and drainage and stormwater management. The Pedestrian Accessible Route along Keller Avenue will connect to the existing sidewalk at the intersection of Keller Avenue and Lititz Pike, providing access to the train station via that existing sidewalk. A temporary bus pick-up/drop-off area and bus shelter will be constructed at the new lot, with temporary bus service to run between the shelter and the train station until Phase 2 is completed.

Phase 2: Pedestrian Bridge
Phase 2 will construct a pedestrian bridge over the Northside Industrial tracks, connecting the new parking lot to the station’s existing passenger bridge. Upon completion of Phase 2, buses will no longer stop at the Keller Avenue Parking Lot. After the pedestrian bridge is in place and the bus pick-up/drop-off is removed, the lot will have approximately 250 parking spaces.


status

Design of Phase 1, the parking lot and Pedestrian Accessible Route, is underway and anticipated to be 30 percent complete by June 2020. Construction is expected to begin in Spring 2021.

Design of the Phase 2 pedestrian bridge is anticipated to begin in Fall 2020.
