Rep. Slaughter surveys work on new train station

Congresswoman Louise Slaughter was in town with local officials to take a look at how construction is going on Rochester's new train station.

The project, which started in October 2014, is still expected to be complete by the end of the summer. Slaughter says this is one way of helping improve infrastructure in our community.

"We can bring lot of companies in but if the infrastructure isn't good, they won't stay," says Slaughter. "So my office has put a lot of money into the airport, the railroad and we got the grant that will help us close up portions of the Inner Loop."

Some things to look forward to: The station will have a much more open space than the old one and have skylights. There will also be retail space as you walk in and the restrooms are upgraded.

The construction also improves handicap accessibility which Slaughter says was a huge problem with the old station.
