The Ambassador Committee of the Macomb Area Chamber of Commerce, the City of Macomb and Amtrak officials celebrated the recent renovations at the Macomb Amtrak Depot (120 E. Calhoun St.) with a ribbon cutting ceremony on Tuesday, December 5.
The renovations included ADA accessibility. The upgrades consisted of a new exterior ramp, interior and exterior door modifications, and a remodeling of the bathrooms and seating area inside the station. The project was completed by local firms McClure Engineering and Laverdiere Construction.
Macomb was chosen as the pilot program for many federally-funded Amtrak renovation projects to be done across the United States.
“We were happy to be chosen by Amtrak to be part of this pilot project,” said Mayor Mike Inman. “We believe the local approach taken with this project, saved tax payer dollars,” Inman added.
