Initial designs have been submitted to the Ypsilanti, Michigan, city council as part of the city’s efforts to land Amtrak service.
“Given our financial situation itself, we’re looking at doing something for the Wolverine stop,” said council member Pete Murdock. “It is sort of a minimalist plan–enough to get the train to stop.”
The depot renovation project is projected to cost $2 million and the city is hoping to obtain grant money to fund it.
The renovations could be finished by late 2017.
