EASTON, Pa. -

Demolition crews are paving the way for a long-planned transportation center in Easton.

Crews are knocking down the former Perkins restaurant and the old Marquis Theatre on South 3rd Street.

That's where a new intermodal facility will be built. It will include a bus station, a high school sports hall of fame and retail space.

Construction is expected to get underway next spring.
