Middletown’s new station provides ADA accessibility, improves multimodal connectivity, and anchors station-area redevelopment. The project also expanded parking capacity and improved vehicular traffic circulation.
A new, accessible Middletown Station was constructed on West Emaus Street at West Main Street (Route 230). The $49.5 million project includes a new station, parking, and track improvements. The station features:
- A central high-level (accessible) platform;
- Elevator and stair towers;
- Accessible ramps;
- Covered bicycle racks;
- 400 parking spaces adjacent to the station; and
- Designated bus loading zones.
PennDOT led extensive coordination to ensure station plans considered multimodal connectivity as well as the Borough of Middletown’s downtown streetscape improvements, Capital Area Transit’s connectivity, and Harrisburg International Airport’s airport master plan.
