Harrisburg Transportation Center is being improved to bring the 1887 station building into a state of good repair.
The $2 million initiative, led by PennDOT in partnership with the Harrisburg Redevelopment Authority, includes building maintenance and necessary upgrades, such as:
- Replacing the aging, leaking, damaged station roofs and associated skylights that have reached the end of their serviceable life; and
- Improving the public meeting space for visitors of the Observation Room.
In a separate but related effort to improve ADA accommodation, Amtrak in 2016 installed a ramp from the lobby to the passenger bridge waiting area and installed an elevator from the passenger bridge to platform level.
