Halethorpe MARC Station's Closed Parking Reopens Wednesday

The portion of the parking lot that's been closed for construction opened Wednesday morning.

The part of the Halethorpe MARC Train station parking lot that's been closed recently was reopened by the Maryland Transit Administration Wednesday morning.

The MTA sent out a press release Tuesday saying that about 200 parking spaces would be available once more thanks to the reopening of the section, which had been closed due to the installation of an 80-foot pedestrian bridge.

That bridge, a 40-ton structure that MTA contractors put up last weekend, is going to link the north and south platforms.

The installation of this bridge is part of the final phase of a $21 million renovation project at the station.

The 200 parking spaces were blocked so they could make space for the 550-ton crane that was used to place the 80-foot bridge between the 40-foot high north and south towers.

Now that all of the parking is available at the station, the extra things that had been in put in place to help commuters, such as the free shuttle bus and free parking at BWI Thurgood Marshall Airport, will be ending this evening. 

When everything is completed in the summer, 1,300 daily passengers will be able to use two 700-foot long high platforms.
