Update meeting for Salem depot set for June 19

SALEM — With designs for the MBTA’s parking garage and train station nearing completion, a meeting to update the public on the project will be held next week.

The MBTA is designing a 714-space garage as part of a $37 million upgrade to the station. MBTA officials will give an update on the project and answer questions Wednesday, June 19, at 6:30 p.m. at Bentley School.

The meeting is one of many public forums the MBTA has hosted about the project in Salem. Officials will give updates on the “90 percent design” — which means the project’s design is nearly finished — as well as the construction schedule and parking lot closures.

The T is planning to build a five-story parking garage to replace the current surface lot, which holds 344 cars.

The new station will have a covered pedestrian walkway from Bridge Street, as well as upgrades to seating, lighting, signage systems and landscaping.

The new facility is slated to be complete by the fall of 2014. For full details on the project, go to www.mbta.com (click on “about the MBTA,” then “T projects” and scroll down to the Salem station link).
