Grand Central Terminal architect selected for Union Station expansion


By Jonathan O'Connell
April 7, 2015
Washington Post

“The architectural firm behind the remake of New York’s Grand Central Terminal will lead the effort to plan a $10 billion proposed expansion of Union Station, a project that could triple passenger capacity at the station.

Beyer Blinder Belle, with offices in New York and Washington, oversaw design, master planning and the revitalization of Grand Central, turning the 1913 Beaux Arts-style train station into a more modern, accessible and efficient rail hub. The firm has done similar work rehabilitating historic buildings in Washington including for Smithsonian museums.

Amtrak's Hiawatha route may be hit by proposed Illinois budget cut
Apr 22, 2015, 2:19pm CDT
Sean Ryan
Reporter-
Milwaukee Business Journal

It is unclear whether a proposal to cut Illinois’ funding for Amtrak service would affect the popular Hiawatha passenger rail route between Milwaukee and Chicago.

Illinois Gov. Bruce Rauner’s proposed budget would cut the state’s support for Amtrak passenger rail service from $42 million to $26 million in 2016.

All of the infrastructure looks old and run down no maintenance. Even the stations look pretty ordinary whats happening in america why cant they even keep a platform clean and maintained?

There seems to be a complete loathing on spending money on maintenance in the US. I've heared it be said that this is partly because it is politically more opportune to build something new rather than maintain something. There are no press events to celebrate your achievement in maintenance after all.

Rather, it's usually the case that money isn't properly apportioned for operations the way it is done for capital expenses.

It's a huge flaw in the way the funding mechanisms work. Any project should include operations when a State or agency seeks funding...
