Raleigh Gets $10 Million To Build Train Station

RALEIGH (AP) - The city of Raleigh has been awarded a $10 million federal grant to help build a new Amtrak train station downtown.

State and local officials say the city still needs another $20 million for the $73 million project to build a station with parking, a civic plaza and other improvements.

Deputy state Transportation Secretary Richard Walls says he's confident the money will be found.

Officials say no decision has been made on when to start the project, including the work on the track, a passenger platform and a new passenger depot.

Mayor Nancy McFarlane says local officials are still working to find more funding for the station.
