The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) is planning to spend $15 million to renovate the Harrisburg Transportation Center.
The project includes improvements to the decades-old building. It also includes plans to create retail and commercial space, ABC27 reported.
“We want to try to improve that entrance, improve the overall user experience, and we want to make that whole area more attractive for economic development, creating jobs, and better utilizing the property that is in that area,” Todd Fauver, PennDOT’s deputy secretary for multimodal transportation, was quoted as saying.
The project will be funded by both the state and federal governments.
PennDOT says that the design is 90 percent complete, while it will begin looking for contractors in the summer.
