Metro-North Railroad is set to begin millions of dollars worth of improvement projects at stations on the Harlem, Hudson and New Haven lines, with much of the work intended to make commuters more comfortable while waiting for trains.

The railroad will cover stairs and overpasses, which should keep puddles or ice from forming. When winter storms cause delays, riders will be able to take the chilly edge off in new heated platform shelters in several stations.

Work also will improve conditions in areas adjacent to some stations, such as a landscaped embankment at the White Plains station between the Mott Street pedestrian tunnel and the Main Street bridge. In Mamaroneck, a parking lot that now provides something akin to an off-road driving experience will be repaved.
