A new Amtrak station is going to be built in East Lansing thanks to a federal grant of $6.2 million, which was announced today.
The current station will be knocked down; the time for that is not yet known.
That site will become a parking lot, and a new station will be built further back on that same property.
The new station should be operational by November 2013.
The construction of the project will not interrupt Amtrak service.
Hannah Saunders will have more details on our evening broadcasts.
