Officials have been in talks about developing a bigger parking lot area at the Southeast Train Station. There is a significant portion of land that the MTA owns, next to property owed by Putnam County. County Deputy Executive Bruce Walker says there is extensive shopping capability near the train station, and they want to capitalize on that. Walker says they also want to try to alleviate some of the traffic on Interstate-84 and the corridor off exit 19. He says one possibility is to allow Connecticut traffic to come into the train station from one side and New York traffic from the other. Putnam County officials meet on a quarterly basis with the presidents of Metro North and the MTA.
