Construction begins next month on the renovation of Saugatuck train station parking lot #1.
The RTM voted last night 24-2 — with 3 abstentions — to approve the controversial $1.5 million plan.
There will be 2 exits, not 1 as in the original design. The one next to Luciano Park is larger too, with 1 entrance and 2 exit lanes.
Also included: new LED lights; another stairway; repaving; raising the lot out of the flood zone; trees; a sidewalk, and an improved streetscape.
Work is projected to be finished before Labor Day.
