ANN ARBOR, Mich. — The City of Ann Arbor has released new drawings of a proposed $86 million train station, Mlive.com reports.

"Note that these are preliminary engineering drawings and subject to change through the design process," City Administrator Howard Lazarus told the news site in an email. "We hope to produce an architectural rendering at a later date."

The proposed facility would replace a brick structure built by Amtrak in 1983. That station features a first-of-its-kind retractable platform to aid level boarding for passengers, including those in wheelchairs or who need assistance with wheeled luggage or strollers.

The full MLive report, including a slide show of the station drawings, is available here.
