The Springfield Redevelopment Authority has selected O’Connell subsidiary Appleton Corporation to manage day-to-day operations at Union Station when it reopens in late June 2017. The city expects 15,000 to 17,000 people a day to pass through Union Station, its bus berths and parking garage.
Union Station, built 91 years ago, closed in 1973. Its $94 million renovation was 40 years in the making. The grand reopening weekend is set for June 23, 24 and 25.
