LANTA's multi-million dollar maintenance garage is coming along in Allentown.

ALLENTOWN, Pa. -

When LANTA's new maintenance facility is dedicated on Oct. 22, a familiar name will be attached to it.

The board of directors of the Lehigh and Northampton Transportation Authority has voted to name the new facility for Armando V. Greco, LANTA's longtime executive director.

Greco played a role in founding LANTA while he served on the Lehigh Valley Planning Commission and was named the authority's first executive director in 1977.

The $14 million facility will be located at LANTA's Allentown campus on Lehigh Street.
