INDIANAPOLIS - Officials plan spending $3.7 million to fix structural problems with Union Station in downtown Indianapolis and are looking at nearly $4 million more in building improvements.
The city-owned building that spans four city blocks dates to the 1850s. It now includes a hotel, some restaurants and a charter school, along with Amtrak train and Greyhound bus terminals.
City officials say immediate needed repairs include an exterior wall where water infiltration caused bricks to fall off, sections of the roof and skylights damaged by hail. Officials say some of the problems come from the vibrations of about two dozen freight trains that run through the station each day.
Future repairs being planned include fixing water infiltration in various places and deteriorating mortar in the building's clock tower.
