Northport Station Feasibility Study

Northport Rendering
Working with multiple private, state and local partners and landowners (the Northport Task Force), the Hagerstown/Eastern MPO and its consultants developed and presented this study to the City of Ranson.  Northport Station is the proposed center-piece of a future smart growth transit-oriented development that will also replace the obsolete Duffields Stop on the MARC commuter rail system.  This study performed site selection analysis on the Jefferson Orchards property, performed preliminary environmental screening, determined station design layouts and costs, ridership and traffic impacts and provided an implementation plan.
