Parking on the north side of the tracks was expanded and reconfigured to accommodate station improvements, provide ADA accessibility, and improve traffic flow.
As part of the Phase 1 High-Level Platforms project, the parking areas on the north (westbound) side of the tracks on either side of North Valley Road were improved. The north lot (on the east side of North Valley Road) now provides short-term parking and a drop-off/pick-up loop close to the new ADA-accessible pedestrian bridge to the new high-level center platform and existing station building. The northwest parking lot provides expanded long-term ADA parking, approximately 50 new parking spaces, a drop-off/pick-up lane for jitneys and shuttle buses, and an ADA-accessible route to the passenger bridge. Improvements include new lighting and landscaping as well as new signage to improve vehicular flow and direct pedestrians through the expanded facilities.
The historic passenger shelter at the north lot--constructed as part of the 1883 Paoli Station--was reconstructed as the north lot bicycle rack canopy.
Construction began in 2017 and the project was completed in September 2019 in conjunction with station improvements.
Amtrak led the project with additional funding by PennDOT, the Federal Railroad Administration, the Federal Transit Administration, and SEPTA.
