Serfass Construction and LANTA Announce New Paratransit Operations Facility

PR Newswire

ALLENTOWN, Pa., March 8, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- The Lehigh and Northampton Transportation Authority (LANTA) and Serfass Construction & Development are pleased to announce that development of a build-to-suit Paratransit Operations Facility for LANTA will break ground this spring. The new facility will be located at 1501 South 12th Street Allentown, PA. 

The new 67,000 square foot facility will feature administrative offices, dispatch, maintenance bay, a wash bay, and vehicle staging. All of LANTA's paratransit operations will be run at the new location. The site was chosen for its easy access to major roadways and its proximity to LANTA's existing headquarters. The new location will allow LANTA to efficiently and conveniently serve the public in Lehigh and Northampton Counties.

Serfass and its affiliated companies will design, build, and own the facility. Move-in is scheduled for early 2022.
