Renovation work restarts on iconic Detroit train station

Restoration work is moving ahead at the Michigan Central train station in Detroit despite the economic fallout from the coronavirus.

Work on the project stopped for seven weeks due to a statewide stay-at-home order aimed at slowing the spread of the virus. But crews are now in the middle of Phase Two of the project, which involves fixing the street structure and repairing masonry, the Detroit Free Press reported.

Ford Motor Co. bought the iconic building just outside downtown in 2018 for research and development of self-driving vehicles.

“While the virus has impacted our project in some ways due to availability of the workforce, materials and logistics, there hasn’t been any fundamental shifts to our overall development plan,” Ford spokeswoman Christina Twelftree told the newspaper.
