Crossing the Tracks
Members of Raleigh’s Passenger Rail Task Force got a tour of a proposed downtown train station site Wednesday morning. Triangle Transit owns the building at the western end of Martin Street that once housed some of Dillon Supply’s manufacturing operations.
The old warehouse is one of two sites under consideration for a new Raleigh train station. Alan Paul, with the state Department of Transportation, told the group that the station could be built in two years after they find funding. Raleigh’s match would be 10 percent, which could come out of a transportation bond on the ballot this fall.
