 Project Highlights

Purpose

A new station will be built at Middletown to p​rovide ADA accessibility, improve multimodal connectivity, and anchor station-area redevelopment.
 

​Description

Middletown Station will be relocated to Ann Street at West Main Street (Route 230). The new $24.4 million accessible station will feature:

PennDOT has led extensive coordination to ensure station plans consider multimodal connectivity as well as the Borough of Middletown's downtown streetscape improvements, ​Capital Area Transit's connectivity, and Harrisburg International Airport's airport master plan.

​​​

status

Site preparation was completed in late 2016. Norfolk Southern trackwork began in late 2018 and is nearly complete. Amtrak construction, which must be completed before station construction can begin, is expected to begin in late 2019 and be complete in mid-2020. 
 

Funding ​Partners

The project is being led by PennDOT with additional funding by the Federal Transit Administration​.​​​​
