Project Update

Demolition Continues - October 2014

Soil nail rig at work.

Significant progress has been made on the site over the past several months.  Early in the year, DOC and their subcontractors demolished the former parking garage at 30 Frank B. Murray St.  This demolition makes way for new parking and bus berth areas on the campus.  Also, efforts are well underway in the operations to demolish the baggage building which is connected to the Terminal Building and will provide the footprint for the bus terminal.  A soil nail installation has been ongoing which includes the installation of nearly 370 ?nails? into the earth to hold the trackside retaining wall in place.  Completion of this soil nail support system allows the baggage building to be demolished.  Actual demolition of the building is expected in November/December of 2014. 

Work has also commenced to remove the terminal building roof and perform abatement of the terminal building interior with work expected to complete by the end of the year.  The terminal building interior demolition work will be starting in November.  All of this early work on site is in preparation for the construction of the new parking garage and renovations to the terminal building which will start in earnest in the early spring of 2015.

Union Station History

Union Station was building in 1926 as part of a series of civic buildings and spaces which help define central Springfield. The complex stands as a successor to three earlier stations on or near this spot on the north edge of downtown. From 1926 until after World War II, rail travel thrived and Union Station was the heart of a bustling district that included the North Blocks of downtown and the adjacent North End.

Union Station closed in the 1970's, a witness to the post-war ascendancy of the suburbs and the decline in intercity rail. In the decades since, the Main Street core south of the station has seen concerted public and private reinvestment, through new construction and extensive reuse of historic structures, as city leadership embraced a movement to reclaim the distinguished character of Springfield and preserve its heritage.
