Hohl Industrial Services Inc. and Scrufari Construction Co. won a $27.7 million design-and-build contract for an intermodal passenger transportation hub planned for downtown Buffalo.
The New York State Department of Transportation announced the winning bids for the three-story structure last week.
The Exchange Street Station will be built on the footprint of the existing 66-year-old Amtrak station, but be twice the size. The new facility will be elevated and located closer to the street than the existing Amtrak building. The new station will accommodate additional Amtrak routes as well as intercity buses, and will connect to Buffalo’s new light-rail system through a newly covered pedestrian plaza.
Details on the bid, engineering specifications, and more related to the project are available here on the NYSDOT website.
The Buffalo project marks the second new station construction in upstate New York in recent years. Work began last year on a $23 million plan to construct a modern and accessible station in Schenectady.
