lot. The automatic entrance building will comprise of a set of stairs,
an elevator and a concourse to connect with the existing station
concourse.
- An elevator in the existing station will provide accessibility from the
concourse to the platform.
- A recreational trail will be provided with trees on both sides.
- A privacy fence will be provided as a screen between adjacent homes and
the recreational trail along property line.
