General Mitchell International Airport (GMIA) Intermodal Station
Zimmerman Architectural Studios collaborated with Parsons Brinckerhoff (PB) to provide preliminary and final architectural and engineering design services for this project which involved a collaborative effort of the Wisconsin Department of Transportation, GMIA, Canadian Pacific Railway, and Midwest Airlines. As part of Wisconsin’s Economic Growth Initiative the primary goal was to provide better airport/Amtrak service to current and future customers of GMIA. The rail passenger stop is conveniently located about one-half mile east of Interstate 94, the main driving route between Milwaukee and Chicago. Residents in northern Illinois are expected to find the rail trip to this new passenger stop a convenient means of connecting to air service out of General Mitchell International Airport. The project includes a platform and passenger waiting building adjacent to Canadian Pacific Railway Main West (Number 1 main) where daily Hiawatha trains in both directions between Milwaukee and Chicago (currently seven round trips daily) will stop to pick-up and discharge passengers.
