Union Station Photo Update - April 2014

Looking into the Tunnel towards Lyman street, NCM Contracting has been working hard to remove the non-structural elements and make the tunnel safe for the engineers to review and inspect.

The tunnel structural steel which supports the train tracks above has been cleared of all debris so that the Project's Engineers can begin their review and inspection.
