Amtrak Depot in Pennsylvania Getting Upgrades

The Middletown, Pennsylvania, Amtrak station will get an upgrade under a plan approved by the Pennsylvania Public-Private Partnership board.

A private developer will design, build, finance, operate and maintain commercially viable facilities on state-owned parcels near the station while maintaining or expanding station parking,.

The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation said in a news release that the developer will be  responsible for station maintenance.

Signed into law in September 2012, the Public-Private Transportation Partnerships Act allows PennDOT and other transportation authorities and commissions to partner with private companies to participate in delivering, maintaining and financing transportation-related projects.
