 Project Highlights

Purpose

​Parking on the north side of the tracks is being expanded and reconfigured to accommodate station improvements, provide ADA accessibility, and improve traffic flow.
 

​Description

As part of the Phase I High-Level Platforms project, the parking areas on the north (westbound) side of the tracks on either side of North Valley Road are being improved. The north lot (on the east side of North Valley Road) will provide 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 will provide 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. New lighting and landscaping are being​ installed, as well as new signage to improve vehicular flow and direct pedestrians through the expanded facilities.

The historic passenger shelter at the north lot and attached canopy over the stairs to the platform level--constructed as part of the 1883 Paoli Station--were removed, catalogued, and stored for future reconstruction.​
 

status

Construction is underway in conjunction with station improvements and is expected to be completed in 2019. The northwest lot was expanded and repaved, with the jitney and shuttle bus drop-off/pick-up lane completed in August 2017. The walkway between North Valley Road Bridge and the north tower opened in April 2019, and north lot reconstruction is underway​.​
 

Funding Partners

Amtrak is leading the project with additional funding by PennDOT, the Federal Railroad Administration, the ​​Federal Transit Administration, and SEPTA.
