Union Station's Main Hall Closed For Repairs

Play associated audio

The main hall at Union Station is closed to repair damages caused by the earthquake that rattled the region last August.

A spokesperson for Union Station says much of the damage is in the ceiling of the Main Hall. While temporary repairs were made after the quake, a small piece of plaster fell from the ceiling last week. No one was injured, and the hall was closed.

Security personnel are on hand this weekend to help direct visitors around the closures and to their destination. Officials say if you're traveling to or leaving from the station, you should travel through the west portal of the hall, which faces First Street.

The main hall is expected to reopen Monday.
