C100 Comments Union Station Drafe EIS

Kirby Vining

The Union Station Draft Environmental Impact Statement (DEIS) proposes an expansion plan that will cost between 5.8 and 7.5 billion dollars1 and require 11 to 14 years to build2. The plan focuses on bus and automobile parking, station concourses, platforms and retail.  But the plan does not adequately address Union Station’s role as a train station. The expansion plan needs to be substantially revised to address that deficiency.
