General Manager and Rail & Transit Administrator
The MBTA is working closely with MassDOT and the City of Salem to design this Intermodal Facility to not preclude the possible future construction of a Transit Oriented Development (TOD) on the adjacent City of Salem surface parking lot.
The new Salem Station and Parking Garage will be fully accessible with a new 9-Car high level platform and a lobby with two elevators in compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). Station access includes an at-grade bus platform, taxi lane and kiss-and-ride drop-off/pick-up area, pedestrian sidewalks and a pedestrian bridge from Bridge Street to the elevators and stairs down to the platform. There will be station upgrades to seating, lighting, signage systems, site improvements and landscaping. The new parking garage is being designed with 714 spaces. The garage will include parking for electric vehicles, accessible parking on each level, zip car parking, motorcycle and bicycle parking, and a parking control system. The project will be implemented using the Construction Manager at Risk (CMR) alternative delivery method of procurement. The facility is being designed to comply with Executive Order 484 — Leading By Example: Clean Energy and Efficient Buildings. The garage is designed to use natural day-lighting and energy efficient lighting with an energy saving lighting control system.
