The Harrisburg Transportation Center (HTC) Transit-Oriented Development (TOD) initiative worked to redevelop the blighted area north and east of the station while increasing train and bus ridership. PennDOT studied a four-block area behind the HTC and public engagement was utilized to complete the study. The TOD study determined that transit-oriented mixed-use development had potential in nearby properties, which could encourage a wider use of rail, bicycle, and pedestrian transportation modes.
A master plan was developed to establish an implementation phasing plan.
Planning began in June 2016 and the TOD Master Plan and Paxton Creek Master Plan were released in March 2018. Implementation of the HTC TOD Master Plan will require further study and/or future multi-disciplined public- and private-sector efforts. Similarly, future efforts to implement the Paxton Creek Master Plan will require local leadership.
A flood reduction feasibility study for Paxton Creek was completed in March 2019.
PennDOT led the planning phase of this multifaceted initiative.
The Market Street Bridge Underpass Improvement Project enhanced the walking route between the station and long-term parking to make it safer and more appealing for pedestrians. Market Street Bridge was originally constructed in 1926.
The project was completed in Fall 2016.
PennDOT led the project with funding by the City of Harrisburg.
Lancaster Station was rehabilitated to maintain and preserve historic elements of the 1929 station building, modernize building systems, improve the use of interior space, and enhance ADA access and passenger amenities.
Construction began in 2009 and was completed in December 2013.
The project was led by the Lancaster County Planning Commission with funding by PennDOT, the Federal Transit Administration, Amtrak, and the City of Lancaster.
The Lancaster Station parking lot improvements enhanced ADA accessibility, improved safety and aesthetics, and provided multimodal amenities. Site improvements included station access reconstruction and sidewalk repairs, parking lot expansion, canopy development, landscaping enhancements, and parking pay stations.
Construction was completed in December 2013.
The project was led by the Lancaster County Planning Commission with funding by PennDOT, the Federal Transit Administration, Amtrak, and Lancaster County.
