Commuters have concerns about the proposed reconstruction of Saugatuck railroad station parking lot 1.
Foti Koskinas is ready to hear them out. And show them exactly what’s being planned.
Tomorrow morning (Monday, June 6, 6 to 8:30 a.m.), the police chief will be at the station. He’ll listen to what commuters say, and help clarify the scope of the work.
Tomorrow afternoon (Monday, June 6, 5:30 to 7:30 p.m.), he’ll close 4 of the 5 exits from the lot — simulating (as best he can) the traffic pattern if the renovation plan is approved.
Anyone wishing to observe the experiment (as opposed to being part of it) should park in lot #2 (off Railroad Place) or on Franklin Street, and watch from Luciano Park. That way, pedestrians will not impede traffic flow.
“Our goal is to work with the community,” Koskinas says. “Everyone wants what is best for the commuter, while at the same time highlighting safety while following required rules and regulations.”
