CLEVELAND — Commuters accessing Cleveland’s Brookpark Station may notice renovations to its main terminal and entrance areas. Officials with the Greater Cleveland Regional Transit Authority recently celebrated the completion of the $16.5-million project to renovate and modernize the Red Line station facility.

Work included a new building and a new tunnel under the existing RTA and freight rail tracks that connect the station’s east and west entrances. The station also received enhancements to its passenger waiting areas, new lighting, security, and cameras to its waiting area, in addition to improvements that make the facility fully compliant with the Americans with Disabilities Act.

About 200 trains serve the station each day, and about 750,000 customers annually. It is the agency’s busiest station for daily commuters.

The Brookpark station is the second to last station stop on the Red Line’s west side, just before the Cleveland Hopkins International Airport. The station is on the border of Cleveland Brook Park.
