Repaving was needed to bring the parking lot into a state of good repair.
As part of the approximately $30.5 million station upgrade project, the parking lot on the south side of East Henry Street adjacent to the westbound station entrance was repaved and restriped. The lot provides 61 parking spaces.
The total project cost of the station, parking lot, and access and overflow parking improvements was approximately $33 million.
The project was completed in early 2016 as a temporary improvement.
In February 2019, the lot was excavated as part of station-related stormwater work. It was permanently repaved in conjunction with the station project and reopened in October 2019.
PennDOT led the project with additional funding by the Federal Transit Administration and Amtrak.
