Metro-North completes $37.4 million Cortland Station project


Yesterday, Metropolitan Transportation Authority, MTA Metro-North Railroad, state and local officials marked the completion of the Cortland Station expansion project.

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.
