Multi-use transportation center going up in Allentown

Some 3,500 LANTA riders daily are expected to pass through a new multi-use transportation center and parking facility when it is completed late next summer.

The $14 million, five-level facility will include 500 parking spaces, a surface lot, a 16-bay bus terminal and retail stores. It is being built on Sixth Street in Allentown, across from The Morning Call which used to serve as Morning Call parking.

Allentown mayor Ed Pawlowski said the new center would be an important link in efforts to revitalize the Allentown dowtown area.
