Station Improvement:
On May 8, 2015, Raleigh Mayor Nancy McFarlane gathered with local, state and federal leaders to break ground for Raleigh Union Station, a new multimodal transit center designed to serve the capital region well into the 21st century. 

The $79.8 million project includes rehabilitation of the Dillon Supply warehouse, track and platform construction and signal and switch improvements.  Featuring dramatic, high ceilings, the renovated building will have a waiting hall, ticket counters and an area for retail storefronts and restaurants. The stationís grand opening is expected to occur in 2017.
