MIDDLETOWN – Local and elected representatives from PennDOT, the Middletown area, transportation providers, and Amtrak held a ribbon-cutting ceremony celebrating the new, recently opened Middletown train station. PennDOT Deputy Secretary for Multimodal Transportation Jennie Louwerse said the project is part of several planned to improve the rail system across the state. Dauphin County Commissioner Mike Preis said the new facility came about thanks to teamwork. The new facility included a roadway extension connecting downtown Middletown to PA Route 230. The station on West Emaus Street at West Main includes a level accessible boarding platform, pedestrian overpass to the platform, elevators and stair towers, on-site parking, and designated bus loading zones.
