Allentown Transportation Center takes shape

The Lehigh and Northampton Transportation Authority on Tuesday approved a 10-year contract with R.K. Commercial of Bethlehem to operate a Dunkin' Donuts and small convenience store in the center, which is scheduled to open in September at Linden and N. Sixth streets.

There is space for at least two other retailers in the garage, facing Linden Street in the section owned by the Parking Authority. Potential tenants have not been announced.

While that building is on schedule, the 600-space garage near City Hall at Fourth and Hamilton streets will not be completely open as scheduled in September.

Five of the eight levels should be open by then, with the rest to open in October, said Tamara Weller, Parking Authority executive director.
