The project included an overpass extension that ties the original station east of the tracks with a new entrance on the west side off of Route 9A, as well as the addition of an elevator, parking, walkway intersection and intermodal facilities.
“This project assures that Metro-North is ready for the ridership growth that is sure to continue as the regional economy recovers,” MTA Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Joseph Lhota said in a prepared statement.
The $34.7 million project was funded by the Federal Highway Administration’s Congestion Mitigation/Air Quality program, the Federal Transit Administration, New York State Department of Transportation and Metro-North Railroad.
