BUFFALO — The New York State Department of Transportation has awarded a contract to design and build a new intermodal transportation facility, replacing Amtrak’s 66-year-old station on the same site.

The $27.7-million project will demolish the current station, replacing it with a temporary structure while the new facility is built. Hohl Industries and Scrufari Construction received the contract for the brick, three-story building. Construction should begin this winter, with completion projected for fall 2020.

The new building will be more than double the size of the current structure, and will offer light rail and bus connnections. It will replace the current low-level platforms with train-level platforms for easier boarding, according to a New York DOT press release.
