St. Cloud Station Getting Renovations

Amtrak has begun a $1.3 million renovation of its station in St. Cloud, Minnesota, that will include improvements to walkways and restrooms.

Other improvement plans include reconfiguring the orientation of how cars park in the station’s parking lot.

The station, served by the Chicago-Seattle/Portland Empire Builder, recently received a new roof at a cost of $180,000. Other work recently completed included installation of new signs and a wheelchair lift.

The St. Cloud depot was built in 1909 by the Northern Pacific and features brown pressed brick trimmed with gray granite.

Amtrak estimates that St. Cloud generates $1.1 million in revenue a year while serving 9,950 passengers.
